The Institute of Rural Development Planning (IRDP) alumni was established in December 10th 2008 during the IRDP 1st Convocation meeting held at the IRDP premises.
The main goal for establishing such body was to remove the vacuum that existed between the IRDP academic staff and former students of the Institute so as to share and exchange experience on issues related to their professional.
The IRDP convocation is unlike any other higher learning Institution conferring of degrees. Rather than a conclusion or a new beginning, convocation is a ritual assembly of our community to celebrate academic accomplishment while recognizing our continual search for knowledge.
In our convocations we invite a wide variety of speakers from different professionals, but all sharing a common purpose: to foster academic inquiry, stir dialogue around pressing issues, and, above all, honor intellectual achievement in our community.
