St. Jerome’s University is a public Roman Catholic University federated with the University of Waterloo, historically associated with the
educational vision of the Congregation of the Resurrection. We are committed to learning and academic excellence; the gospel values of
love, truth and justice; and the formation of leaders for the service of the community and the Church. In all of our activities and practices,
St. Jerome’s University functions within the context of the Roman Catholic tradition and the principles of academic freedom.
Reflecting on the past five years during my term as President, the same phrase
comes to the fore again and again, “It’s all about the students.” This phrase
encapsulates and brings to life all the concepts spelled out in the St. Jerome’s
University mission.
The students and their tremendous potential are why we do what we do at SJU.
It is both a challenge and an opportunity to help harness their energy, their
enthusiasm and their intelligence as they grow and become well-educated,
community-minded adults. In response to this call, St. Jerome’s University
provides an exceptional liberal arts education grounded in the bold vision of
the Congregation of the Resurrection as a foundation for further growth and
action. Our students are the heart and soul of our institution and they embrace
the learning opportunities they encounter at SJU. You need only consider
the continued success of our Beyond Borders, GO Guatemala, and SJU in Peru
programs and the students’ experiences of the world and their place in it, while
serving others and growing as individuals with a global perspective.
St. Jerome’s is truly a home for students. This past year the Student Hub was
created in a central campus location to integrate the daily activities and flow of
students, both those living in our residences and the many off-campus students
for whom SJU is their second home. This enhanced experience of community
will serve all of the students well during their time on campus and as they
pursue their future careers.
Campus Ministry has also been given some special attention this past year.
Considerable work went into a comprehensive review of the services delivered
through Campus Ministry and renewed focus is being placed on student-centred
ministry and service. Student Peer Leaders now have a more significant and
focused mandate as they help address the needs specific to the students of St.
Jerome’s University. Throughout the academic year all of our leaders support
students as they face those challenges particular to university students today.
While methods and accessibility may adapt to the demands of the modern
world, the principles behind the ministry we provide at SJU remains centred on
the Gospel values inherent in our mission.
The fundamental student focus is equally present among our faculty and staff
who work each day to help deliver the academic excellence so essential to
the St. Jerome’s University experience. To assist in these endeavours ongoing
governance renewal has been an important feature in recent years and months.
The historic establishment of the new SJU Senate Council will ensure that
“Students leave St. Jerome’s
with much more than they
came – an excellent education,
an experience of community
second to none, a sense of self
that will guide them through the
challenges and joys ahead.”
important academic decisions are given appropriate consideration in order
that effective decisions are made. Similarly, the renewal work undertaken
by our dedicated Board of Governors will allow our governing body and our
administration to have clear mandates to perform their duties responsibly with
all necessary accountability. Administrative governance has also been a major
focus this past year with the renewal or replacement of all university policies.
St. Jerome’s University has rich traditions and has contributed much in our
almost 150 years to Church and to society. This past year we began to prepare
for our 150th anniversary three short years away in 2015! The 150th Anniversary
Steering Committee, consisting of faculty, staff, students and community
partners, is hard at work making preliminary plans. The Catholic intellectual
tradition continues to thrive at SJU as students today seek answers to big,
fundamental questions in much the same way as did our earliest students.
David welcomes the new President Dr. Katherine Bergman.
Throughout my time at St. Jerome’s much has been accomplished and
considerable advances have been realized in our work for the students. As I
prepared my update for the Board of Governors, reporting on the progress
and achievements of the past five years and the mandate I was given upon my
arrival, I am astounded by the tremendous accomplishments of the St. Jerome’s
University team. Together we have realized improvements in our day-to-day
practices in all aspects of the organization, from budget setting to fellowship.
Everyone at SJU, from the Chancellor and Board of Governors, the faculty and
staff, our alumni and our current students, has played a part in keeping this
tremendous institution moving forward. With the commitment and hard work
of so many individuals coming together as a team, we have and will continue to
accomplish much good work.
The future of SJU looks very bright indeed. In that spirit it is my pleasure
to extend a heart-felt welcome to Dr. Katherine Bergman, St. Jerome’s
University’s 7th president. It is with all confidence that I pass the torch
of leadership to Katherine, and I know you will join me in extending every
support as she works to advance the mission of St. Jerome’s, because, it is in
fact all about the students!
Blessings to you and your loved ones.
David B. Perrin,
President and Vice-Chancellor
The principle upheld at St. Jerome’s University of “educating the whole
person” can at times be done best by leaving the traditional classrooms
behind and exploring the world beyond our usual borders. A responsible
world citizen will have experience in the broader world, where people face
different challenges and consideration of the greater good by those who
have the ability to do so is essential to the growth of a community.

The Centre for Responsible Citizenship (launched in 2008) is the service
and community-based learning and research component of SJU. It is
grounded in the belief that students are agents of positive social change
and that SJU has a responsibility to foster a sense of the common good in
students, faculty and staff. We emphasize experiential learning, providing
opportunities to engage in learning outside of the classroom through:
• International service learning with our
Beyond Borders program
• Local volunteer initiatives with our Beyond “U”
community service program
Mike, (4th year) during the SJU in Peru program and a young
local resident.
• Curriculum development and support of our
Community-Based learning
• Public Lectures in Catholic Experience
• Innovative research and scholarship in
community development.
Whether serving in the coffee growing regions of Peru, partnering with
Friends of the Orphans in Guatemala, or supporting local people and
programs through the Working Centre, we are actively striving to educate
the whole person.
“My experience with international
service learning taught me more
about myself and the world than
a classroom ever could.”
Marissa Taggart (BA’11),
Beyond Borders, GO Guatemala
Students who participate in the Centre for Responsible Citizenship, whether
in the Beyond Borders program, SJU in Peru or Go Guatemala, for example,
gain an appreciation of the challenges faced by people around the world.
They also learn about the opportunities they have with that new found
understanding, to act and speak against the injustices they encounter
at home and elsewhere in the world. At the 2012 spring convocation
ceremonies the importance of such action was highlighted by the special
guest speaker and Honorary Doctorate recipient Douglas Roche, O. C.
Douglas Roche, O.C.
“I cannot rest without giving you
a one-word message: Peace.”
For the third year in a row, St. Jerome’s University awarded an Honorary
Doctorate of Theology, honoris causa, to a significant individual for
their good work, in keeping with SJU mission. Each Honorary Doctorate
recipient has a remarkable story and has chosen to pursue activities
which improve our world. They set excellent examples for our students
in choosing to uphold the values of SJU and to champion worthwhile
causes. In 2012 the Honorary Doctorate was presented to Douglas Roche,
O.C. for his tremendous lifetime of work towards peace and disarmament
in Canada and around the World. In his address he shared this message,
“Peace is at the centre of our faith, the longing in our hearts, the greatest
need in the world.” These are truly words by which to live.
Previous Honorary Doctor of Theology recipients:
2011 Most Reverend Anthony F. Tonnos, for his dedication to Catholic
education and leadership of the Diocese of Hamilton, former Chancellor
of SJU from 1984-1991 and Chair of the Education Commission for the
Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops in the 1990s.
2010 Deborah Pecoskie, PhD – for her contributions to theological
learning and education, former Board of Governors member from 1993
and serving as Chair from 2000-2006, was fundamental in establishing
our Masters of Catholic Thought program.
The St. Jerome’s University faculty members are an exceptional group of
talented academics with a broad range of experience and expertise, as
well as diverse research and teaching specialties. We are fortunate to have
such an accomplished group of individuals sharing their knowledge and
guiding our students in their own post-secondary educational journeys.
At SJU we value the contributions and perspectives of our faculty and their
significance to the entire St. Jerome’s experience.
Governance Renewal has been a focus for the SJU Board of Governors
and many hours have been spent reviewing By-laws and structures under
which the institution operates. Most significantly, the decision to enact
bi-cameral governance was approved and a Senate Council was formed.
Composed of all the full-time regular faculty members and chaired by the
President and Vice-Chancellor, the Senate Council can address issues of
importance to the academic side of SJU. This is an important and historic
step serving to preserve the academic excellence of which our institution
is so proud.
Professors Toni Serafini, Tracy Penny Light and
Frances Chapman.
The Faculty members at St. Jerome’s University will now have a formal
role and a new venue for essential decision-making on those academic
matters of fundamental importance to our institution, to the delivery of
the top-notch education for which we are known, and to ensure we meet
the formal educational demands of our students. Work at this level has
already begun and with the input from an exceptional team of talented
professors the SJU Senate Council will develop into its intended role as
a bi-cameral partner with the Board of Governors.
“Faculty’s student focused
approach is a critical component
of the St. Jerome’s advantage.”
Our Vice-President and Academic Dean, Dr. Jim Frank, joined us last
summer and has completed his first year leading the academic mission
of St. Jerome’s University. Jim has a cross-appointment with University
of Waterloo’s Department of Kinesiology.
With 30 years of experience as a teacher, researcher and academic
leader at the University of Waterloo and the University of Windsor,
Jim brings a strong understanding of post-secondary education
and a commitment to academic excellence. Working with a talented
group of faculty, staff and sessional instructors, Jim is strengthening
our partnership with the University of Waterloo and advancing our
reputation as a leading liberal arts Catholic university. Jim attributes
much of his own success to the support and encouragement of former
teachers of St Jerome’s High School and is proud to be a member of
St Jerome’s University as it continues the mission of the Congregation
of the Resurrection.
An impressive number of articles, books, book chapters and journals
have been written and/or edited in the past year by our SJU faculty
members. Here are a few of note:
Jim Frank, Vice-President & Academic Dean.
• Chad Wriglesworth (English): The Poetics of Water: Currents of
Reclamation in the Columbia River Basin.
• Whitney Lackenbauer (History): Canada and the Changing Arctic:
Sovereignty, Security and Stewardship.
• Benoit Charbonneau (Mathematics): Geometrical frustration and
static correlations in a simple glass former.
• Chris Burris (Psychology): Hearts strangely warmed (and cooled):
Emotional experience in religious and atheistic individuals.
• Cristina Vanin (Religious Studies): “Attaining Harmony with the Earth”
in In Search of the Whole: Twelve Essays on Faith and Academic Life.
The memories and experiences our St. Jerome’s University graduates keep
and build on as they pursue careers, family life, community service and a
whole host of lifetime goals, are both unique to the individual alumnus and
common among the many personalities and lifestyles of our graduates.
They learned much throughout their years at St. Jerome’s, fundamentally
though, they learned about service. That desire to continue to serve others
is the reason we have such a healthy community of alumni. If you consider
the work of our Alumni Advisory Group, you can see the dedication to the
SJU mission in their work and the spirit they exhibit.
Mark Greco (MMSc ‘05, BASc ‘04), Alumni Advisory Chair.
Former SJU resident.
SJU alumni are the experts in how to help alumni connect with SJU.
The Alumni Advisory Group is made up of dedicated volunteers whose
goal is to advance the mission of St. Jerome’s University by helping
to foster a lifelong relationship between the university and its alumni.
Alumni engagement can be seen in planning and participation at special
events, networking and mentoring opportunities, and in the selection of
a recipient of the annual Fr. Norm Choate Distinguished Alumni Award and
D.R. Letson Community Service Award. Of course, we count on them to
help generate financial support from donors, but it is their spirit and the
example they set which makes them so successful.

“Alumni’s role in the St. Jerome’s
community helps us assess
how we are delivering on our
promise to be the best we can
be as a Catholic post-secondary
St. Jerome’s University has long been proud to be a founding partner in
the establishment of the University of Waterloo. With almost 150 years
of tradition and a reputation for academic excellence, our ongoing
contributions to our affiliate partners across the creek at University of
Waterloo enhance the educational opportunities and campus life of both
institutions. Current students and graduates alike reap the benefits of this
successful collaboration.
In 2012 we have an opportunity to celebrate with UW and recognize an
individual graduate whose accomplishments and success have been
supported by the influences of both institutions – each in its own unique
way. This year’s Distinguished Graduate is Kelly Moynihan, who was
featured in our spring edition of SJU Update. We will be presenting our
Distinguished Alumni Award in partnership with the Faculty of Science
at UW on November 29, 2012. This joint celebration reflects the strong
relationship SJU enjoys with UW in areas that we do not teach, but where
we have important alumni relationships with students who lived in
residence and feel a close connection to SJU.
Kelly Moynihan (BSc ’79).
Academically we will see continued collaboration with the Faculty of
Science in a new way with the arrival of our new SJU President and
Vice-Chancellor, Dr. Katherine Bergman. An appreciation of Katherine’s
extensive background in Science, specifically in the areas of Geology and
Palaeontology, has been recognized in her cross-appointment with the
Faculty of Science. Maintaining such close connections with our partners
across the creek adds to both institutions’ abilities to provide our
students with exceptional educational opportunities.
There is so much more to a place than simply the buildings, grounds and
physical spaces. What makes St. Jerome’s so special is, of course, the
people. The faculty, staff and administration are all important parts of
this outstanding institution. However, it’s the students who really breathe
life into the day-to-day activities at SJU. Their spirit and enthusiasm
enliven the atmosphere, which is why we consider St. Jerome’s University
to be a people place.

Bruce Rodrigues, an SJU alumnus (BMath 83), recently spoke about
his experiences at SJU; more specifically he confirmed the impact and
positive influence of the people he encountered during his time here, on
him personally, as a student. Bruce is the Director of Education for the
Toronto Catholic District School Board, has a Master of Divinity, along with
many years of service with the Waterloo Catholic District School Board.
In 2012, SJU awarded Bruce The Chancellor John Sweeney Award. In his
acceptance speech Bruce named many individuals who helped lead him in
his growth as a student and as a young man. He specifically identified Fr.
Norm Choate, Dr. Scott Vanstone and Sr. Marie Taylor SSND for their guidance.
These also included fellow students, professors and administrators who
encouraged him to think, to challenge ideas, and to consider how he might
approach the concepts of peace, justice and service to others.
Each year St. Jerome’s University bestows the Chancellor John Sweeney
Award at the Feast of St. Jerome celebrations coinciding with the saint’s
feast day. The award is named for the Hon. John Sweeney, the first lay
Chancellor of SJU, and champion of Catholic leadership and education.
Bruce Rodrigues certainly exemplifies the principles behind this award,
which Hon. John Sweeney demonstrated during his lifetime, and is among
many distinguished individuals who have been honoured with this award
over the past 12 years.
“A leader needs to rise above,
and bring their personal values.”
In the fall of 2011 we celebrated the installation of our Chancellor
James Beingessner. Known across the community as Jim, his roots
are firmly in Waterloo Region, where he has raised his family.
Though retired from his years with the former family business,
B & W Heat Treating, Jim’s active involvement with both business
and community interests is thriving. He was the Chair of Canada’s
Technology Triangle (CTT) representing coordinated economic
development interests and has served on many post-secondary and
charitable organizations’ boards and committees. As Chancellor of
SJU, Jim is more than just the titular head of this institution; he is a
true ambassador and active promoter of both higher education and
the service learning aspects of SJU. His experience and business
acumen in all areas of our region and university life are extremely
valuable to the Board of Governors and the entire St. Jerome’s
University community.
Jim Beingessner
Chancellor, St. Jerome’s University
“The quality of the experience a student has as an
undergraduate is often as formative as the academic
disciplines he or she undertakes. St. Jerome’s continues
to provide an excellent student life experience as well
as a challenging academic exposure. I am proud to be
the Chancellor of this Catholic gem which has been so
important to the history and development of the University
of Waterloo – one of Canada’s finest universities.”
