On June 3, 2017, the UTAA was delighted to welcome Brian Stewart, Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Munk School of Global Affairs, to present the keynote address at the annual Alumni Celebration in Convocation Hall.
Stewart is one of Canada’s most award-winning journalists and has reported from the front lines of history’s most monumental events. In his address, Stewart candidly shared his reflections on the pleasures, flubs and occasion terrors of a half-century covering major events, and examined the growing criticism of the media’s own role in stoking mass anxiety in these turbulent times. The audience heard Stewart’s in-depth analysis of significant events and lessons learned, interspersed with insightful personal anecdotes about his time as a front-line reporter.
The Celebration also featured a short UTAA AGM, and the presentation of the 2017 Carl Mitchell Award for Community Engagement to this year’s winner, Ms. Kimberley Tull (BA 2000 UTSC, MEd 2013). Learn more about the award and this year’s winner on our website.
Information for the 2018 Alumni Celebration will be posted here early in the new year. Please check back for updates.
