  • 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
  • CBUFA celebrates students: Jillian Ellsworth left…and then came back! This Honours #English graduate went to King’s College @ukchalifax to complete the one-year #journalism program 📝 and was thrilled to end up back at CBU, now working in the Marketing and Communications #MARCOMM department. “Essentially, I now get to write for CBU.” Jill’s passion for reading and writing found a nurturing environment at CBU, and she fondly remembers taking #Modern #AmericanLiterature – “it was the best reading list ever!” – and loved the engaging conversations she had in the seminar. Also a #freelance #writer, Jill has a regular column in the @capebretonpost #CapeBretonPost 🗞#CBUFAstudents #CBUFA #CapeBretonUniversity #CBU #ouruniversity #capebreton #novascotia #nspse #cdnpse #pse #highered #education #community #teaching #research #service #students #faculty #labinstructors #archivists #nursingpracticeeducators #researchchairs
  • CBUFA celebrates students: In February, 13 students from the Shannon School of Business #SSOB traveled to #Jamaica with Dr. Leslie Wardley @cbuniversity and Dr. Natalya Brown @nipissingu to work on consulting with the #FernForestEcoVillage. The Fern Forest Eco-Village is a fledgling #ecotourism business with a #community based charitable aspect located several kilometers outside of #OchoRios, Jamaica in the #GreatFernGully. Fern Forest Eco Village worked with students on two major projects. First, students explored ways to increase economic participation from the community using #beekeeping. Second, students explored #ForestBathing, which is a rapidly growing activity regarded as #alternativemedicine and #preventivehealth care in places like Japan, China, North America (Canada), and Europe (Germany). This experience allowed students to engage in #appliedresearch in which they visited the potential development site and could envision the future operations of Fern Forest Eco Village. This #expedition not only had benefits for the students but also for Fern Forest Eco Village as it helped them explore feasible business operations, but also has broader impact on the #FernGully community as a #poverty reduction strategy. #CBUFAstudents #CBUFA #CapeBretonUniversity #CBU #ouruniversity #capebreton #novascotia #nspse #cdnpse #pse #highered #education #community #teaching #research #service
