Made an interesting career "Left Turn"? We'd love to know! Whether the change in your career path was recent or over a decade ago, send us your story.

We want your Passions! If you have an interesting personal passion that isn't your day job and is one you would love to share with your fellow alumni, we would love to hear about it!

Have a theme idea? Do you have a great "Passion" or "Left Turn" for our regular features? Simply have a great story to pitch for the "Your Ivey Network" section? Want to hear from a specific faculty member? Do you have some general feedback? Intouch wants to hear from you!

Intouch is governed by an Editorial Board of alumni and staff who meet twice a year to select relevant themes for the following edition of Intouch. From there, the Editorial Staff meet to select alumni who best represent the theme from a diverse range of backgrounds. Intouch welcomes all theme suggestions. We are not able to accept articles for re-print.

Please send your fascinating "Passions," your career "Left Turns," and any other ideas to Jessica Uniac, Managing Editor (see below). All themes suggested are brought forward to the Editorial Board for consideration.
