One Goal. One Million.

The Laurentian University Alumni Association is aware that thousands of members of the extended Laurentian community volunteer within their communities and around the world. We believe that our students, alumni, staff, faculty and extended community can continue to devote one million hours of their time, from now until December 2019, and we want to celebrate their benevolence.
