2017 Annual General Meeting

The Alumni Association consists of nearly 10,000 alumni residing in Canada, the US and abroad. Alumni stay connected through the collaborative efforts of the NSCAD Alumni Association and Office of University Relations. They work to connect alumni to the university and each other to promote and share the achievements of alumni, encourage volunteerism, provide educational and enrichment programs and actively support the university’s fundraising efforts.

Come hear about the things your NSCAD Alumni Association has been doing throughout the past year and help chart the course for the future.

NSCAD Alumni groups date as far back as the early 1940s with the Alumni Progress Award for graduating students. The present association stems from a group of concerned graduates who recognized the need for keeping in contact with former students.


The NSCAD University Alumni Association is a dynamic, member-focused organization that aims to enrich the alumni experience and build the profile of its members and NSCAD University.


By facilitating communication and sponsoring a variety of alumni programs, events and benefits the NSCAD University Alumni Association:

  1. promotes a strong mutually beneficial relationship between alumni, NSCAD University, and the community;
  2. fosters an inclusive environment based on cooperation and fellowship;
  3. assists and advances present and future alumni in the pursuit of excellence;
  4. exerts influence as a valued partner on matters relevant to present and future alumni.

The Alumni Association Board of Directors is elected by alumni each year. Although, these representatives must be alumni, we encourage volunteer support from students and faculty or concerned members of the arts community. With two alumni representatives on NSCAD’s Board or Governors, we’re a voice at the policy-making level of the university.

“I cannot wait to be at school this fall and grow, not only as an artist, but as a person as well. Thank you for the gift of opportunity. I will use it to the best of my human ability. This scholarship means the world to me and I will make you proud.” - Graham Ross (BFA 2019)

Lindsay-Jacquard “This award makes a difference for me both financially and emotionally. To be recognized for my accomplishments is a boost to my confidence, as a student and an artist.” - Lindsay Jacquard (BFA 2016)

NSCAD-Scholarship-57“When someone makes the choice to be an artist, it’s not easy. For a lot of people, they incur debts as students and then they graduate and find a job. But as an artist, you still might have to go through a period where you are developing a style and getting a career rolling. We want to recognize that struggle and support artists.” - Doug Pope, president of the Robert Pope Foundation

Brian-Sloan-2“While a student I was asked if I could ‘explain what is going on here.’ I thought for a moment and had no words to explain the range of experience I was receiving through NSCAD. Now, some 20 years later I still have no answer to that question but I do know that NSCAD changed my life. I hope that my little gifts of gratitude help the students of today along their chosen path of studies.” - NSCAD alumnus Brian Sloan (BFA 1993)
