About Third Thursday

Third Thursdays are conversations that spark ideas and create community at Algonquin College. Every month, we bring in local experts and innovators to share stories that inspire and empower listeners. We transform spaces around campus into places where students, employees, alumni, and community partners can forge meaningful connections while learning from each other.

The Third Thursday community is story-driven, curious, and collaborative. We’re not afraid of perspective shifts or pushing the envelope. We skip the small talk and dig deep into topics that matter. We’re here to fuel dreams through dialogue and turn passion into purpose. Come and be part of the story.

This talk is presented by the AC Hub, Mamidosewin Centre, Cooperative Education, Campus Services, Alumni and Friends Network, Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Library, Office of Applied Research and Innovation, and the Social Innovation Lab.
