The University of New Brunswick is closely monitoring the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak across Canada around the world.  Our top priority is the well-being of our community both on-campus and off.  We are committed to doing everything we can to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Public health information indicates that we must take steps to avoid gatherings and minimize close contact among groups of people.  As such, all events organized by the Associated Alumni / Alumni Office through April 30, 2020 are cancelled. Where appropriate or possible, we will work to reschedule events that are cancelled to another time or format.  Unfortunately, this includes one of our most beloved events – the Proudly UNB Awards dinner.  We were very much looking forward to celebrating together on April 3 and will be working in the coming weeks to determine how best to honour each of this year’s recipients. 

For anyone who has already paid to register for one of the cancelled events, a full refund will be issued automatically along with a confirmation via email.  The Alumni Office team will work to process these refunds in a timely manner; we appreciate your patience as we work through the details. 

If you registered a group, please notify the members of this unfortunate cancellation.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns by emailing [email protected]

Thank you for your support and understanding as we navigate this unprecedented situation.

Proudly UNB,

Michelle McNeil

Executive Director, UNB Associated Alumni
