St. Paul’s University College is very proud to announce the appointment of the Right Honorable Michaëlle Jean, 27th Governor General of Canada, as Chancellor, for a three-year term starting immediately.
“We are delighted to have someone of Mme. Jean’s talent and stature take on the role of Chancellor,” said Brad Siim, incoming Board Chair. “Her interests and values align beautifully with those of our College.”
St. Paul's GreenHouse alumna Trishala Pillai (BA’16) is fuelled by work which enables her to create, promote and sustain prosperity for all. This is why she continues to serve on the social impact incubator’s advisory council, to provide incoming students with the same valuable experience she received during her time in the Innovators in Residence community. She also recently served as a judge for UWaterloo’s Pandemic Challenge.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made for many changes at St. Paul’s, none larger than those impacting our academic programming and residence life this fall.
“Our role has always been to provide a memorable, rewarding, safe and supportive student experience,” said Steve Prentice, Director of Student Life. “This year will be different, but students will still be welcomed and supported within our community, the same way they always have been.”
Cherie Wai (BES ’19) was recently recognized with World Vision Canada’s Ruth Roberts Award. This award is part of World Vision’s Hero’s for Children Awards, which celebrate individuals who have a heart for children and have demonstrated effort to make the world a better place, ‘especially’ for children.
