"Our event today brings together benefactors who have invested their time and resources in the University, and students who will someday write new chapters in the history of Saint Mary’s University," said Dr. Dodds in his speech.
Dr. Dodds indicated that in order to achieve the vibrant, dynamic campus that so many people enjoy, the University has been assisted over the years by the Archdiocese; federal, provincial and municipal governments; foundations, in particular, the Patrick Power Estate, the Windsor Foundation, and the Sobey Foundation; community groups; faculty; staff; students; alumni; corporations and friends of Saint Mary’s. These contributions have sustained the University with new buildings, renovations, research support and scholarships. The scholarships have reinforced the University’s mission of accessibility as they have made the difference for many students to embark on and complete their dream of earning a degree.
"As the University continues to attract extremely qualified students and seeks new ways to ensure that Saint Mary’s remains accessible, scholarship support will be critical. For that reason, the University wishes to express its heartfelt appreciation to the individuals, corporations, and foundations that are investing in today’s and tomorrow’s students," said Dr. Dodds.
Each year Dr. Dodds and the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research host this annual event.
