Senior Alumni Program

Senior Alumni Program

Western's award-winning Senior Alumni Program is the largest, longest running lecture series in Canada. It was founded in 1977 by the late Dr. Ralph S. Devereux, BA'46, MA'48, LLD'85.

The Senior Alumni Program consists of weekly lectures feature leading researchers and faculty from Western as well as experts from many disciplines from London and area. Lectures are held Fridays on campus in the Faculty of Education Auditorium.


With support of Western Alumni, the Senior Alumni volunteer Executive Committee have made the decision to postpone the Senior Alumni Program the Fall of 2020.  We are hopeful that in due course, we will be able to meet again in person to resume our regular program.

We hope that you will consider participating in one of our virtual offerings to stay connected with Western.
