Senior Alumni Program

Senior Alumni Program

Western's award-winning Senior Alumni Program is the largest, longest running lecture series in Canada.

Weekly lectures feature leading researchers and faculty from Western as well as experts from many disciplines from London and the surrounding community. Alumni have been enjoying this lifelong learning program for 42 years.

Lectures are held on Fridays in the Faculty of Education Auditorium.

Autumn 2019 lectures will be announced on Wednesday, August 21, 2019.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We are NOT accepting any NEW members for the Senior Alumni Program as we are full to capacity. The wait is approximately 5 years or more. We are limited by space in the auditorium as well as parking.

NO GUESTS: Beginning this autumn, the lectures will be for members only. Guests will no longer be able to pay at the door. This allows us to move alumni off the waitlist and welcome them as members.

To be added to the wait list, please contact Nicole at As space opens up, those on the waitlist will be notified, with Western alumni being given preference. 

Past members are guaranteed a membership and can maintain it as long as they wish.

We are extremely proud of our Senior Alumni Program and wish we could accommodate more alumni. We do hope you consider attending one of the many lectures that take place on campus: More lectures

The Senior Alumni Program was founded in 1977 by the Late Dr. Ralph S. Devereux, BA'46, MA'48, LLD'85.
