Join alumni and friends in the New York area for a reception with special guest, Lieutenant General The Honourable Roméo A. Dallaire (Ret’d).
We welcome all Dalhousie alumni and friends to this special reception. Enjoy a complimentary drink and appetizers while you hear from one of Canada’s leading humanitarians, LGen. Roméo Dallaire.
After a distinguished career in the Canadian Military, retired General Dallaire founded the namesake organization The Roméo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative. The organization is now based at Dalhousie, with the mission to end the recruitment and use of child soldiers globally.
General Dallaire served on the Senate from 2005 to 2014, was appointed to the United Nations Secretary General’s Advisory Committee on Genocide Prevention in 2006, and is the Fellow at the Montreal Institute of Genocide Studies, Concordia University. He is an officer in the Order of Canada, a recipient of the Pearson Peace Medal, and a Grand Officer of the Order of Quebec. He holds honorary doctorates and fellowships from over three dozen universities in Canada and abroad, including Dalhousie (2012).
General Dallaire currently spends his time shaping the dialogue within public discourse to create momentum towards ending the use and recruitment of child soldiers.
Please extend the invitation to prospective students, family and any other alumni you know. Dress is business casual.
