  • CBUFA celebrates students: Paulette Brinston hails from the small community of #Gillams in western #Newfoundland. She previously attended the nearby #Grenfell campus of Memorial University @memorialuniversity where she studied #Sociocultural studies and later earned a diploma in #BusinessAdministration from College of the North Atlantic @cna_news. Following a career in #finance, Paulette decided to pursue her lifelong passion for #writing and embarked on a new chapter in her life, transferring to CBU in September 2017 to earn a Bachelor of Arts in #Communication. During the Winter 2018 semester she served as a #CommunicationLab #PeerFacilitator and found a real sense of purpose in #mentoring students. Her experience as a peer facilitator has created a desire to teach and she hopes to continue her studies upon graduation to pursue a career as a post-secondary educator. Paulette is currently serving in the #Coop position of Communication Lab Peer Facilitator/Lab Assistant this Spring/Summer semester and will graduate in May 2019. #CBUFAstudents #CBUFA #CapeBretonUniversity #CBU #ouruniversity #capebreton #novascotia #nspse #cdnpse #pse #highered #education #community #teaching #research #service

  • CBUFA celebrates students: Mary Rebecca "Becky" Julian was a student of Lloyd White's when he taught an in-community course in #IndianBrook. Lloyd, together with Velvet Paul from Indian Brook, nominated her for an #Honorary #Doctorate in 2017 after she had become ill and was not able to continue her studies. However her lived experience and #Elder standing, along with her work to preserve Mi'kmaq culture (she continues to work with the youth in Indian Brook), speak volumes about her importance in the #Mikmaq and broader Cape Breton #community. She’s a wonderful woman, incredibly humble and Lloyd says that it was an absolute honour to be in her presence. 📷 @cbuniversity #CBUFAstudents #CBUFA #CapeBretonUniversity #CBU #ouruniversity #capebreton #novascotia #nspse #cdnpse #pse #highered #education #community #teaching #research #service #students #faculty #labinstructors #archivists #nursingpracticeeducators #researchchairs
