A welcome message from the Executive Director of Alumni Engagement

Hello! My name is Julie Lafford and I’m privileged to be the new Executive Director of Alumni Engagement for York University. While I’m not (yet) a York alumna, I’ve already started to form a connection with this wonderful place and York’s friendly and caring community of students, faculty, staff and, of course, alumni.

I am dedicated to providing you with outstanding events, programs and services that will enhance your connection to York and, more importantly, provide you with experiences that are valuable to you. I hope to see many of you at an upcoming York event. If you have any comments, questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to the Alumni Engagement team at alumni@yorku.ca or 416-650-8159.
