One World Gala

The award-winning One World Alumni Awards presented by TD Insurance are designed to align with the strategic priorities of Saint Mary’s University. Students and alumni of Saint Mary’s are making meaningful impact in their communities, be it on campus or all over the world, which speaks to our strategic priority of value and values, emphasizing the Santamarian values of student leadership, social responsibility, and cultural diversity.

The intentional reinvigoration of our Latin motto, Age Quod Agis, meaning “do what you do” has become a call to action to our entire Santamarian community. The One World Alumni Awards strive to recognize these efforts.

New in 2017: Two One World Awards will be given, one to an external charity which displays ties to Saint Mary’s University, and one to a student society that is working on a charitable project with an external charity. Both awards will be valued at $7,500 sponsored by TD Insurance. One runner-up in each category will be awarded a $1,000 prize sponsored by Manulife Insurance.
