Sarnia-Lambton university grads invited to connect

The Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership is looking to connect with university graduates to gauge interest in developing alumni networks in the Sarnia-Lambton area.

Aimed at connecting university graduates in the area, the Partnership’s Alumni Network Project was developed to determine the interests of the area’s alumni, which may include career development, community growth, or social activities.

“We want to foster an opportunity for people who are looking to connect with others in the hopes of growing the alumni community in the Sarnia-Lambton area. The potential networks could prove to be a very valuable asset in strengthening the community,” said Stephen Thompson, CEO of the Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership.

To provide the initial steps in making those connections, the Alumni Network Project team constructed a short survey that will be available for completion throughout the month of September.

The survey, which is available at, will help in the identification of various alumni activities that could take place in the Sarnia-Lambton area, as well as the identification of individuals who would like to serve as mentors in the community and those interested in receiving mentorship from experienced professionals in their alumni network.

In addition to the survey, the Alumni Network Project team will also look to connect with university graduates at various community functions throughout the month of September and is offering to visit with any local businesses or individuals to provide more information on the project.

“We hope to connect with as many university alumni as possible and provide a valuable outlet for the fostering of innovation, jobs, professional growth, and ultimately elevate experiences in Sarnia-Lambton,” Thompson said.
