Featured Alumni Profile

Randy Sa’d, BCom ’03

“My passion for the U of T community did not simply end with graduation. The moment I heard there was a mentorship program and later an Alumni Network, I was quick to volunteer and offer my leadership. Giving back, applying some of my recently acquired professional experience, helping to build a larger and stronger community as well as personal relationships has been invaluable to me.”

Randy Sa’d, B.Com 2003, is just one of the shining examples of alumni who continue to give back their alma mater.

Randy, currently an independent management consultant, was a very involved student and that involvement paved the way for his current role as Chair of the Commerce Alumni Steering Committee.

So, hearing a little about Randy’s reasons for staying connected, what might motivate you? Randy himself answers it best.

“The U of T experience doesn’t have to end at graduation. You can walk away with just a degree or you can take a risk, and get involved within a large group to which you already belong and develop valuable new friends, business associates and opportunities to enrich your life. It requires nothing but a bit of time and there is really no limit to what one may get in return.”
