Alumni Wall of Fame

To honour some of the Faculty’s outstanding alumni, a Wall of Fame was launched in 2008. Inductees are chosen by a panel of faculty, staff and alumni from each decade.

The diversity of professions is impressive – their level of achievement even more so.

Congratulations to the 2018 inductees: Ross Duffin, BMus’73 and Joel Ivany, BMusA’04, who were honoured at the Alumni Awards Dinner on June 8, 2018, in The Great Hall, Somerville House.


To nominate a deserving alumnus or alumna, please refer to the nomination form and submit your written nomination by January 31, 2019. Inductees will be honoured at Western’s annual Alumni Awards Dinner in the spring.
