Levelling the Learning Field

A $2 million gift from the Joyce Foundation in December 2015 will create a legacy of support for students with disabilities and keep Saint Mary’s affordable for all deserving students. A significant portion of this transformative gift is designated for students registered with the Fred Smithers Centre of Support for Students with Disabilities. The remainder goes to support economically disadvantaged students through the Joyce Foundation Bursaries Fund. “This generous donation helps us ensure that Saint Mary’s is accessible to all academically-qualified students,” says Saint Mary’s President Dr. Robert Summerby-Murray. “We are deeply indebted to Dr. Ron Joyce and the Joyce Foundation’s Board of Trustees for honouring Saint Mary’s with such a substantial gift.”

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