SPAD Alumni Leaderboard
Our SPAD program stands at a pivotal point in its history. As we approach our 50th year, we believe that success can be attributed to our strong history, our incredible alumni network and the experience students gain through our program.
However, the world and our industry are rapidly changing, and we must have a vision and direction that differentiates our position in the sports management landscape and ensures we’re able to meet the needs of our students and alumni moving forward.
Now is the time for rebuilding and bold thinking and, in an effort to achieve these goals, we’ve created the SPAD Enhancement Fund. Working together, the SPAD Advisory Board and the department will put your money to work to invest in projects and initiatives to help ensure students continue to get the dynamic learning experience that you remember.
From student awards, student experiences and program enhancements, we’re committed to attracting high-caliber students. In addition, we’re also committed to investing in our brand, our research efforts and PR initiatives to help strengthen SPAD’s voice in the industry and position our brand as the premier sports management program in Canada.
SPAD’s success over the years has been supported by a dedicated community who have been extraordinarily generous with their time and support. Thanks to their efforts, engagement with SPAD is stronger than ever and we are excited about our momentum moving forward. That said, in order to achieve our goals and position our program for long-term success, we need your help.
By donating today and joining our SPAD Leaderboard, your gifts will directly support the School of Sports Administration’s projects, strategies, and initiatives led by volunteers and the program, which include:
- Recruiting and retaining top students;
- Improving and upgrading teaching labs, equipment and software;
- Funding national and international field trips;
- Creating student internship opportunities;
- Establishing lecture series, conferences, and guest lectures.
- Strengthening alumni engagement;
- Investing in PR and communication initiatives to enhance SPAD’s awareness;
- Funding research grants to help position SPAD as an industry thought leader;
- And much more!
The LU Advancement team along with SPAD would like to thank the many alumni and friends of SPAD who have joined our Leaderboard. These generous individuals have helped ensure we achieve our long-term goal of being the premier sports management program in Canada. The SPAD Leaderboard recognizes donations and pledges by all supporters of SPAD and SPAD students made between May 1, 2020 and the 50th Reunion in October 2022.
