IRP Alumni Association

International Relations Program Alumni Association

The International Relations Program Alumni Association (IRPAA)’s mission is to keep International Relations Program alumni connected to the program, create strong connections within the alumni community, and support current and future students in navigating their careers by connecting them with alumni.

The IRPAA’s activities are divided into three broad categories:

  1. Connecting alumni with each other and the program through events, a monthly newsletter (forthcoming), and a private LinkedIn group so that the International Relations Program can be an enduring community beyond graduation
  2. Knowledge-sharing between alumni and current students through events, panels, and workshops to help students navigate their post-IR academic and professional opportunities
  3. An alumni coaching program (in development) to pair third- and fourth-year students with an alumni coach who can help them learn about their career options and help students build a professional network

If you’re a current student, you can get involved in our activities through the IR community at U of T. If you’re a member of the alumni community, get in touch with us!
