The Saint Mary’s University community was pleased to see Carol Dodds MEd’90, MA’95 honoured as Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser of the Year at the 2014 Maritime Philanthropy Awards Dinner in May. In addition to her many other volunteer and fundraising interests, Mrs. Dodds is the driving force behind Time for Tea, an annual English tea

party that began 14 years ago and has since raised more than $400,000 for bursaries for single parents who attend the University. “I appreciate the honour,” says Mrs. Dodds, “but I didn't do this alone. From the set-up crew to the bakers, tea- and sandwich-makers, helpers, donors and corporate sponsors, Time for Tea relies upon the unfailing generosity of Saint Mary's loyal friends and alumni. We have an exceptional group of  committed volunteers, many of whom have been involved since the very first Time for Tea.”

Saint Mary’s Psychology professor Kevin Kelloway also took top honours in early June when he was elected President of the Canadian Psychological Association, Canada’s largest psychology association. “It’s a great honour to receive this endorsement from my peers,” says Dr. Kelloway, Canada Research Chair in Occupational Health Psychology. “It’s also an endorsement of Saint Mary’s. The university has had a very strong record in psychology for the past 30 years. Our PhD program in Industrial/Organizational psychology is widely recognized, and our CN Centre for Occupational Health and Safety is home to North America’s largest collection of occupational health psychologists in a university-based centre.” 

Campus Notes: “I give because I believe in Saint Mary’s University.”
