Several times each semester, President Lahey brings a King’s alumnus to have lunch in the Lodge with current students. Together, they enjoy a delicious meal and casual conversation. Check back here for updates about the visiting alumnus/a for this date. If you are a current student, invitations are sent to all by email and are assigned to eight on a first to respond basis. Please email if you would like to attend Lunch in the Lodge.

Guest Alumnus – Stefan Leslie

Stefan Leslie, BA(Hons)’96 is no stranger to tackling tsunami-sized issues. With a career that has spanned the globe, working primarily in the oceans and fisheries sector, Stefan took on his latest challenge in 2019 when he became the CEO of the newly-formed Research Nova Scotia (RNS). A past FYP student, Stefan often hires King’s graduates and people with a background in the humanities.

“I have hired a good number of those with a humanities background–people who studied comparative religion, archivists, medieval literature specialists—all manner of folks who have those interests.  I didn’t hire them for their specialized knowledge in that field, but because there is a certain quality to those individuals. I like the way they think, and perhaps we share an approach that helps us tackle those large size issues.”
