Imagine the potential that could be realized if every member of the School of Continuing Studies community could come together to learn, share, and grow?

Introducing  Connections: an online community matching students, alumni, and industry experts for a career-inspiring coffee.

Powered by Ten Thousand Coffees and supported by RBC Future Launch, Connections is an exclusive networking platform that connects members of the School of Continuing Studies, including students, alumni, industry experts and instructors, for meaningful career conversations, based on their specific career interests and goals. You can schedule and set up a coffee chat to take place in person or online. This online platform is free to use and is a perfect fit for our new digital-first reality and global community.

How does it work?

Sign Up

Answer questions about your background, interests and expertise. Matches are made based on participants’ identified goals (e.g. share experiences, learn new skills).


You’ll receive a monthly email from a member for the School of Continuing Studies community who may be interested in learning from you.


Suggest a time to chat to share your advice and experience.

There’s no minimum or maximum time commitment for this! This could be as little as a 15-minute conversation or half-hour coffee meetings throughout the year. The choice is yours!
