Dr. Dey estate gift to Education

December 10, 2015—Dr. Jean Downie Dey joined the Faculty of Education at UVic in 1963 (the same day that UVic became a university) where she taught until her retirement in 1981. Her specialities were Early Childhood Education and Language Arts. A bequest from Dr. Dey of almost $0.5 million will establish four new student awards in the Faculty of Education.
