Jennifer Bell and Associate Dean Laurene Sheilds

The Faculty of Human and Social Development is privileged to present nursing graduate Jennifer Bell as our recipient for the Certificate of Outstanding Academic Distinction. Jennifer performed two 12-week work placements at the Royal Jubilee Hospital. There, she served alongside nurses and surgeons with Island Health’s Operating Room and Peri-operative Program. “The work is intense even on a slow day,” says Jennifer. “It’s fast paced and there are high expectations.” Not surprisingly, she was hired on full-time. Jennifer has also been inducted into the Honour Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International, which is a long-standing group dedicated to advancing world health and celebrating nursing excellence.  

Assistant Professor Dr. Karen Evers-Fahey worked closely with Jennifer and describes her as exceptionally strong in the knowledge and skills needed to work successfully in demanding clinical placements, and also exceptionally caring and sensitive to her patients and colleagues. Karen says, “Her calm presence and good humour enriches all who work with her and makes her one of the most gifted nurses I’ve had the privilege to teach in my 15 years as an educator.”

The School of Child and Youth Care celebrated UVic’s Alumni Week 2015 with a reception at the University Club.

 Indigenous Student Support Centre Launch

The Faculty of Human and Social Development is pleased to announce the launch of its Indigenous Student Support Centre (ISSC). The ISSC is responsible for supporting Indigenous students enrolled in HSD schools and also supports the schools on their various Indigenous initiatives. The ISSC works closely with the First Peoples House and other Indigenous services on campus and ISSC staff are culturally grounded ambassadors both at UVic and within local communities. It is our hope that this Centre can inform future institutional efforts to support Indigenous students.
