Queen’s University’s Schulich Leaders recently met with Principal and Vice-Chancellor Patrick Deane and Vice-Principal (Advancement) Karen Bertrand to share their experiences and reconnect with their fellow scholarship recipients.
Hosted at Benedickson House, the former residence of Queen’s principals, the students were treated to a brief history lesson on the building and its role in the early days of Kingston and the university from Principal Deane and then engaged in a Q&A session. Queen’s Schulich Leaders asked the principal how they as a group could help contribute to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals as well as forward-thinking questions about the future of testing education coming out of the pandemic.
This event is a key feature of the Queen’s Schulich Leaders Program, providing the students with opportunities to engage with Queen’s leadership and other experiential opportunities across campus to broaden their university experience and build connections through community.
