The annual Employee Giving program is uOttawa's employee fundraising initiative that seeks to engage faculty, support staff and retirees in the advancement of our vibrant community.
We all have causes dear to our heart and this prompts us to say: "I Give".
Together, we give because our students are our inspiration.
We give because we are proud of what makes uOttawa a cross-roads of cultures, languages and perspectives.
From February 24 to April 15, Pierre Thibault, (Assistant Dean and Secretary, Civil Law Section) and Manon Dugal (Senior HR Director and Strategic Initiatives, Human Resources), co-chairs of the 2016 Employee Giving Program, invite all their colleagues to donate to the various projects that have been created by our employees to support our students, to advance research and to foster a thriving community on campus.
We have put service at the heart of our mission. Once again this year, uOttawa employees are coming together to defy the conventional and find game-changing solutions to the challenges facing Canada and the world.
Michel Prévost has a long history with the University of Ottawa, one that dates back to his first days as a student at the Faculty of Arts in 1975. When he graduated, he began working at the University of Ottawa Archives and in 1990 he became the University Chief Archivist.
Mr. Prévost was the first of his family to graduate from a post-secondary institution, so he is fully aware of the high cost of pursuing a university degree. Michel has been one of our loyal donors since 1987 and has supported a number of funds.
Given his background as an archivist and historian, Michel Prévost saw a need to increase appreciation for our regional history among the student population and to raise the profile of our regional heritage within the Department of History. To do so, in 2013 he created the Michel Prévost Bursary in Regional History. In 2014, he was very proud to present the first such bursary.
"I give... to highlight the history of our region"
Zaina-Sophie Salibi was recently hired by External Relations at the University and immediately saw a way to honour two very close family members who had passed away from cancer. She decided to donate to a fund that helps students and researchers studying ovarian cancer to help find a cure for this terrible disease.
"I give... because a cure is waiting to be found"
