The Wycliffe College Alumni/ae Association was established to affirm and promote Wycliffe’s Six Principles and to unite alumni/ae in Christian fellowship. Working closely with the Development Office of the College, the executive committee of the Association undertakes various programs and projects to support alumni/ae in their ministries and also to financially assist current students through bursaries and other means.
We produce the Alumni/ae Newsletter and are involved in the planning of other conferences and events. One such initiative includes the Morning Star Seminar which we plan to sponsor annually in different parts of Canada. Designed as an element of continuing education for alumni/ae and others, the seminar involves the close reading of a classic commentary on a book or portion of scripture. We have also begun regular discussion blogs on faculty-selected books. Each May, we organize the Annual General Meeting of the Alumni/ae Association which all graduates are encouraged to attend. We have recently starting introducing an educational component to these meetings.
As our membership is generous, we are able to help with various college projects including the restoration of all the class photos which now hang in the hall leading to the chapel. Our goal is to identify a new project each year which we can help support.
In everything we do, our aim to make the college stronger and to help all graduates maintain a relationship with the College, its traditions, and with one another.
As alumni/ae, you are encouraged to promote the College, its academic excellence and faithfulness to Christ. Thankfully, this job is an easy one as there is much to celebrate about Wycliffe. Your financial support is also vital in helping our students as they are trained and equipped to be Christian leaders. We appreciate your personal gifts and those from your congregations. Thank you!
If you have ideas to share or would like to be in touch about anything to do with the college or the Alumni/ae Association, I would be happy to speak with you.
