Anjalee Wijewardane – B.Sc. '22

“The Chemistry department at King’s is very tight-knit. I have been able to form close relationships with professors who care about their students’ academic, personal, and spiritual lives. I have made life-long relationships at King’s. Being an international student, the community helped me adjust to and embrace life in Canada.”

Wayne Prins – B.A. ‘03

“I look back on my time at King’s and see how it equipped me for my role as CEO of CLAC. My education challenged and prepared me to make thousands of decisions throughout the course of my career. We have to look to faith to understand how to respond to things happening around us, whether it's dealing with colleagues or speaking with political leaders.”

Dr. Caroline Lieffers – History

“How were people disabled in the course of American expansion — through wars, conflict and sickness? How have the United States and other imperial powers used frameworks of disability to make people seem less-than? These are some questions I explore in my research as there is an immense amount of power in discrimination.”
