Professor Caroline Andrew to be awarded the Eugène de Mazenod Medal

On April 29, 2016, Saint Paul University will celebrate the end of this academic year with a ceremony that will honour its graduates, in the De Mazenod Chapel in Laframboise Hall.

During the ceremony, a Eugène De Mazenod Medal will be granted to Professor Caroline Andrew. Named in honour of the founder of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate, this medal recognizes Eugene de Mazenod’s primary concern for dealing with people’s real-life situations by showing boldness and zeal in addressing urgent societal issues. The Eugène de Mazenod Medal honours individuals who have made a significant contribution to the development of human capital in their community, in their environment or in society as a whole.

Dr. Caroline Andrew’s career at the University of Ottawa spans more than 30 years. A former dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences (1997–2005), she is currently an emeritus professor at the School of Political Studies and director of the Centre on Governance. Her research has focused on creating a more inclusive Canada for women and girls, and on the integration of recent immigrants. With this in mind, she co-founded Youth Futures and Discovery University, two organizations that allow individuals faced with social and personal challenges to learn, grow and reach their full potential through higher learning.

In 2015, Dr. Andrew was awarded the Order of Canada, one of our country’s highest civilian honours.
