What is The Last Lecture?

The concept of a Last Lecture became internationally known when Dr. Randy Pausch gave his Last Lecture Speech on September 18th, 2007 at Carnegie Mellon, a University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylania. The Last Lecture Series asks a Faculty Speaker to answer one question in the form of an engaging public lecture:

“If this were your last time to address a group of students, what would you say to them?”

Last Lecture has since become a tradition at universities around the world and we are proud to have this tradition now at Ryerson!

2017 Last Lecture Speakers:

Graduating Student: TBA
Alumni Panel: TBA 
Ryerson Alumnus: Brock Groombridge, Alumnus, Radio and Television 2009

Following the Last Lecture there will be a networking session with the Ryerson Career Centre and Alumni Relations, here to support the professional development of Ryerson students and alumni. As you embark upon your career, we can offer career services to you for up to five years after graduation. There will be free food available and an opportunity to network with your peers, Ryerson staff and faculty.
