Welcome back to Rady Homecoming events!
The Rady Faculty of Health Sciences is pleased to welcome alumni back in person to campus to celebrate milestone reunions, university, faculty and college-wide events for UM Homecoming 2022, which takes place from September 21- 24, 2022. This year, 15 milestone class reunions from across Rady colleges are taking place!
It is the first time since 2019 that in-person events have returned, bringing back many of the traditional celebrations like the Rady Dean’s Homecoming Breakfast for University of Manitoba alumni and community.
