It’s hard to believe that we will be celebrating our 50th Reunion in 2022! In recognition of this milestone, and to help us create a lasting legacy for our class to provide support for current and future students, we have created the Science ‘72 EDI 50th Reunion Fund, in short, the Science '72 Fund.

The purpose of our fund is to provide support to student and faculty-led initiatives for the advancement of equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) within the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. This is a focus for both Queen’s and the faculty, particularly for students who have not traditionally seen themselves represented throughout their post-secondary experience. 

Funds may be used to offset expenditures related to EDI programming in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, including but not limited to:

  • Outreach programs (Indigenous Futures in Engineering, Black Youth in STEM, etc.)
  • Student club and design team projects/initiatives
  • Student conferences and workshops (on and off-campus)
  • Curriculum research and development
  • Professional development and training (faculty and student)
  • Faculty recruitment (i.e. Diversity and Inclusion Program Manager, Chair for Women in Engineering, etc.)

For more information on EDI in the faculty check out the following:

We thank our generous classmates who have already donated or pledged their support. To date, we have raised almost $260,000 in cash, gifts, and pledges! Our objective is to reach or exceed $350,000 by our 50th Reunion this Fall. The intent is that fundraising would not end then, but to continue and grow the fund.

Please consider making a donation (and get a break on your taxes), support our fund, and help us build a lasting legacy for Science ’72! To make a gift or pledge, click on the red Give Now button in the top right corner.
