Backpack to Briefcase

The Backpack to Briefcase (b2B) program provides opportunities for students to understand their education in a broader context – opening discussions with alumni, faculty members, staff and peers about life after graduation.

Alumni are invited to meet with students and offer encouragement and career advice as they embark on a new stage of their lives. b2B was recognized with a 2014 Prix d’Excellence Gold Award for Best Alumni Initiative by the Canadian Council for the Advancement of Education (CCAE).
