Legislature Recognition for Saint Mary’s University

3 November, 2016

Today the Nova Scotia Legislature heard two special resolutions recognizing the work of Saint Mary’s University.

The first recognition was for the Legal Information Society of Nova Scotia (LISNS) and four Saint Mary’s students who built a digital prototype for them using open source software to support members of the public. 

They were recognized by the Minister of Justice, Diana Whalen, for innovation in promoting access to justice for Nova Scotians. 

  • Ollando Brown – Bachelor of Commerce
  • Tapiwa Munyanyi – Bachelor of Commerce
  • Gilroy Gordon – Master of Science, Computing and Data Analytics
  • Dominic Collie – Bachelor of Arts

The project came about thanks to a partnership initiated by the Co-Curricular Record and Career Services.

The second recognition was for the Sobey School of Business’s important role as an asset to the academic and business communities, in particular for the leadership and initiative shown by being the first business school to undergo the Business School Impact System. The conclusions of this analysis are highlighted in the recently released Creating an Impact with Purpose, Sobey School of Business’ First Impact Report.

The Minister of Business, Mark Furey, acknowledged Dean Patricia Bradshaw and congratulated the Sobey School of Business on its successes.
