May 25th, 2020

It was a very successful week for StFX’s Advancement Department, which picked up six national medals out of 10 categories entered at the recent Canadian Council for the Advancement of Education (CCAE) 2020 Prix d'Excellence Awards.

StFX is a member of the CCAE, along with over 130 other Canadian post-secondary institutions.

“The CCAE recognizes best practices in the realm of fundraising, alumni relations, and communications at advancement departments across the country. Annually, the CCAE awards “Prix d’Excellence” through a peer-led evaluation process. We were thrilled to recently learn that StFX won six of these awards, second only to McGill in the number of awards an institution had received,” says Murray Kyte, VP Advancement.

“It is a huge honour to receive one award, let alone six of them! To me, it highlights the quality of our people within Advancement and also across the university as much of the work involves various units working together.”
