Outside the gates: Ivey gives back to London community

Mar 13, 2018

Western Campus

The newest issue of Western News celebrates the programs, organizations, and people who go beyond the Western gates and give back to the London community.

Ivey students and alumni are featured in three Western News stories. The first, "Bringing business expertise to the community" is all about Ivey's Community Consulting Project (CCP), a student-run project that matches HBA students with local nonprofits to provide free consulting services. The CCP student directors, HBA students Alina Lalji and Bobby Kaloty, were interviewed for the story.

The second story, "Bringing artful partnerships to the community," talks about London’s SATELLiTE Project, which gives new artists a place to exhibit their creations, something many young artists may find difficult because of a lack of funds. Ivey student Victoria Stopar, completing a dual degree with HBA and Arts & Humanities, is featured in the piece.

The third story, "Bringing urban farming to the community," puts the spotlight on Richie Bloomfield, a dual-degree HBA and Huron University College graduate. Bloomfield co-founded Urban Roots, a not-for-profit organic urban farm, along with Jeremy Horrell, Heather Bracken, and Graham Bracken.
