Message from the president
to an international youth gathering in the United Arab Emirates in early 2010. He developed Dr. Khalil El-Khatib’s idea for a parental monitoring system and presented the work to youth from around the world. A quick look around our campus highlights many of our successes. ACE, which celebrated its grand opening in June, the Energy Research Centre, which will open later in the year, and the Clean Energy Research Laboratory, which officially opened in September 2010, are three great examples. These facilities are helping UOIT meet our mandate to contribute strongly to the Canadian economy and its social well-being through the development of innovative and relevant research. Another example of UOIT’s success is the university’s expansion to the city’s core. Last September more than 1,300 students, faculty and staff began studying and working at the new downtown Oshawa location. Whether you have helped contribute to scholarships and bursaries, research projects or the construction of state-of-the-art buildings, know that your gifts have contributed to our remarkable growth and success. Over the past few years, UOIT has experienced tremendous growth while our students, faculty and staff have earned numerous awards and marked countless achievements. Our donors have played an important role in our success to date. Not only have your gifts helped eliminate some of the financial burden faced by many of our students, you have also helped us continue to provide a leading-edge learning environment that is second to none in Canada. From a record enrolment of 7,400 undergraduate and graduate students to the university’s inaugural Homecoming, UOIT has had many reasons to celebrate during the past year. For example Dr. Rupinder Brar, a UOIT Physics lecturer, was named TVOs Big Ideas Best Lecturer; Jessica O’Brien, Health Sciences, class of 2010, became the first-ever Canadian student to receive a Roy G. Post Foundation Scholarship in February 2010; Dr. Ed Waller, professor, Faculty of Energy Systems and Nuclear Science, was issued a United States patent for his Radiation Triage Mask invention; and David Millie, Information Technology, class of 2011, was selected as Scout Canada’s representative 4 UOIT’s future is bright and so is the future of our students - our next-generation professionals who will make a tremendous impact on society upon graduation. Thank you for the trust you’ve placed in UOIT’s outstanding and innovative students by investing in them now and, more importantly, in their future. Warm regards,
Dr. Ronald Bordessa, president (retired) June 2011
Small team, big dream
UOIT’s EcoCAR team may be small but their determination and perseverance have brought them great success to date in the EcoCAR: The NeXt Challenge competition. UOIT is one of three Canadian universities selected to compete against 16 North American universities. Building on UOIT’s electric vehicle research, this team of students has converted a General Motors (GM)-donated 2009 hybrid vehicle into a fully electric model, the only one of its kind in the competition. Participants in the challenge are investigating a variety of innovative green solutions that will integrate lightweight materials into the vehicle, improve aerodynamics and utilize alternative fuels. While the team has experienced success, it has also had its share of challenges. Prior to being accepted, the team had to provide documentation confirming they had the funds needed to complete their design, which included the cost of a $90,000 battery pack. With the help of UOIT’s Advancement department and EcoCAR team advisor Dr. Greg Rohrauer, assistant professor, Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science and academic director, GM of Canada Automotive Centre of Excellence, the students received the letter of support they needed to compete from local philanthropist Robert Schad. His generosity has resulted in $75,000 in funding from the Robert Schad Foundation and $135,000 from Earth Rangers for EcoCAR. In 2009, the first year of the competition, the student teams used design tools to develop a vehicle with minimal environmental impact that maintained consumer appeal. During this time, the team worked on their vehicle in space provided on campus. But when that space was allocated for the Clean Energy Research Lab, the students found themselves looking for a new work area. Turning to the Advancement department for help once again, they were successful in securing Williamson Uxbridge from a local donor, who offered his vacant used car dealership service bays for the team to set up and continue to build their car. The team spent countless hours preparing their space so it was shop-ready, working on battery technology and testing and modifying the car in preparation for the next challenge. As part of the second phase of the challenge, the team took their car to Yuma, Arizona for the next round of testing in May 2010. Their design took top honours in two categories: for the car’s performance when changing lanes at high speed and for dynamic consumer acceptability based on handling, noise and vibration. Emerging from 5
“They have overcome huge obstacles to be part of this competition and proved they are up to any challenge put before them.”
this competition, the car was taken to San Diego, California where it received fourth place for its electrical and mechanical systems and sixth place overall. While in San Diego, the team was presented with the second-place Bosch Diversity award, which recognizes the team who best attracts and retains people of different nationality, ethnic background, gender and academic program. The students completed the final phase of the competition, which took place in June in Washington, D.C. and finished 13th overall. “I am so proud of this group of students,” said Dr. Rohrauer. “They have overcome huge obstacles to be part of this competition and proved they are up to any challenge put before them. From a late start on the car conversion, to an hour commute by bus to the lab, to cleaning up service bays and finding the tools they needed, these students have shown a great deal of resourcefulness and innovation. They have achieved significant results and regardless of the competition outcome, they have demonstrated that they are winners.”
Student succeeds thanks to donor generosity
Reading course material is something some students may take for granted. For Alana Saulnier who is legally blind, it’s a task that takes hours because she depends on technology to help her. But she hasn’t let her disability stand in her way. Through hard work and dedication to her studies she’s earned a number of donor awards – all of which have helped her to achieve her educational goals and gain acceptance into UOIT’s Master of Arts in Criminology program. “Receiving scholarships at the undergraduate level really helped me because I was able to include that I had received them on my application for graduate studies,” she said. “It definitely opened the doors to new opportunities.” Saulnier began her post-secondary journey studying in Toronto, Ontario. After realizing she wanted to study criminology and not wanting to commute, she earned her Law and Security Administration diploma from Durham College before bridging to UOIT’s Bachelor of Arts in Criminology program. “I love UOIT. Your teachers know who you are and they are very professional and dedicated. I’ve had outstanding experiences with the Centre for Students with Disabilities. They are on the ball and that has meant a great deal to me.” Her academic journey has not been easy but she hasn’t given up. She’s overcome many learning obstacles and continues to pursue her education goals. “Getting these awards has really helped me because the time spent dedicated to my studies limits my working opportunities,” she said. “Every time I receive funding I have put it towards my education.”
“It definitely opened the doors to new opportunities.”
A total of 381 donor-named awards were disbursed to students during the 2008/2009 and 2009/2010 academic years.
UOIT alumnus recognized by premier
Deciding to become a teacher may not have been an easy choice for Vernon Kee, a 2006 UOIT Bachelor of Education graduate, but it was definitely the right one. Kee was honoured with a Premier’s Award for Teaching Excellence in the New Teacher category in May 2009. An engineer-turned-teacher, Kee teaches Grade 9 MaST Engineering, a specialized four-year program in Mathematics, Science and Technology, and grades 10 to 12 in Computer Science at the Danforth Collegiate and Technical Institute (DCTI), a secondary school within the Toronto District School Board. An active supporter of extracurricular activities, when he’s not in the classroom he can be found mentoring new teachers, maintaining DCTI’s website, directing seven student clubs and coaching six athletic teams. “UOIT has had a huge impact in teaching me how to be the best teacher I can be and I give it credit for one of the greatest accomplishments of my life,” said Kee. “The professionalism of the professors and their words of wisdom helped make me who I am today and the lessons that I learned still echo into my day-to-day teaching. The technological advantage that UOIT is all about is what gave me a competitive edge in getting a job and making me a more effective teacher. UOIT is an amazing school and I proudly wear my grad T-shirts to school almost every week.” The Premier’s Award for Teaching Excellence celebrates exceptional educators and support staff and the contributions they make to student success. Each year the awards are presented to five experienced teachers, two principals, a school team of five and three new teachers within the categories of Teacher of the Year, New Teacher of the Year, Excellent Support Staff, Excellence in Leadership, Team of the Year and Lifetime Achievement. “Vernon is an outstanding teacher and the UOIT Faculty of Education could not be more proud of him,” said Dr. Jim Greenlaw, dean of the Faculty of Education. “This award clearly reflects Vernon’s passion for teaching and the quality of education that has been the building block to his success as a teacher.”
“UOIT has had a huge impact in teaching me how to be the best teacher I can be.”
Harold Schickler’s legacy lives on
“This award will help me and my family. It will give me motivation to keep studying and will also help financially. Thank you.” – Muhammad Gill, 2009-2010 Harold Schickler Bursary recipient Harold Schickler was a successful steel fabricator who recognized the value of a post-secondary education. He often employed Engineering students seeking co-op placements and when he passed away several years ago, his fellow members of the Rotary Club of Uxbridge created a bursary in his name. Wanting his legacy to continue year after year in the region he lived, Harold’s wife Iris made the bursary perpetual to help students continue to benefit from this gift. Since 2008, UOIT Faculty of Engineering students who have demonstrated good practical ability, high academic standing and overall hard work have received much-needed financial aid thanks to this generosity. “I have a very warm feeling inside me that others can benefit educationally from this Bursary and I know Harold would be proud as well,” said Mrs. Schickler. “To help our young people get an education is the best investment one can make for the future generations, our country and our world.” Thanks to the Harold Schickler bursary, this award helped relieve the financial burdens of two students so they could continue to pursue their academic dreams. “I’m pleased in this small way to help students with their education,” she said. “I know Harold would be equally as pleased.”
“To help our young people get an education is the best investment one can make for the future generations, our country and our world.”
Carol Gifford leaves legacy to honour her family
Leaving a legacy in honour of her family is very important to Carol Gifford. Her family has a historical link to the Oshawa area, being one of the early pioneer families to take up farming in the area during the mid-1800s. This is one of the reasons she has become a planned giving donor at UOIT. “UOIT is the best thing to happen to Oshawa since GM,” said Ms. Gifford. “It has forced people to look beyond GM as the city’s major employer and economic base. In addition, UOIT has helped to expand perception of our community.” Ms. Gifford, a retired Special Education teacher, was fortunate to have parents who supported her decision to pursue post-secondary studies. Like many other students, she also knows the burden of debt accumulated for her studies. She wants to help alleviate some of that burden so students can enjoy the overall experience gleaned from university. Her gift will benefit future female educators studying at UOIT’s Faculty of Education. “University is an expansion of the mind and it opens all kinds of possibilities,” she said. “It broadens you and you will never have another experience like it.” Ms. Gifford has a passion for travel, one that began while she was a teacher. She had the opportunity to travel to places like Russia and China with her colleagues and fellow university students. Since retiring she continues to travel and believes her education has played a key role in providing her with these experiences. She wants students not to look at their education as a means to an end but to look at it as a chance to experience opportunities they wouldn’t have dreamed of. “It makes me feel fulfilled to know that I am giving someone else the chance to attend university to learn and grow,” she said. “You need to give back and I need to make sure it’s going to benefit locally.”
“University is an expansion of the mind and it opens all kinds of possibilities. ”
Celebrating gifts in action
Since opening its doors in 2003, our donors have helped fund the construction of our state-of-the-art campus, in addition to enriching the academic, research and vibrant student life experiences of those who attend the university. Donor generosity has also supported much-needed scholarships and bursaries, resulting in a $13 million endowment. Gifts to the endowment are invested and a portion of the income generated each year provides student support. Each year the Annual Donor and Student Reception is held to celebrate the support of our donors. These pictures capture the appreciation expressed by students and members of the UOIT administration at previous events as well as some words of gratitude from the student scholarship and bursary recipients. “It is hard to put into words what this award means to me. It could not have come at a better time because I was worrying about money and how I could find more time to work and still keep my grades up. When I received the award it was like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders because I can get through the semester without worrying about my financial situation. I can now focus on graduating with high grades so I can enter the workforce with confidence.” – Rachel Vice, 2008-2009 recipient of the Marjorie Elizabeth Willoughby Award
“This award means that my financial burden is lessened. Most importantly, it validates my hard work towards doing well in school and in the community. It’s a good feeling to know that my work ethic is appreciated and valued.” – Irina Levit, 2009-2010 Vickie Knox Award recipient
“Thank you so much for giving me the privilege of receiving the Scotiabank Group Award. This will go directly to my tuition, which till now I am having trouble paying, and allow me to concentrate on my studies.” – Soheila Satar, 2008-2009 recipient of the Scotiabank Group Award
“This award means so much to me and my family. It provides hope and the notion that anything is possible. I would like to thank the donor for their kindness and generosity pertaining to this award. Also, I would like to do much more for the community and give back, as an award like this would not be possible without the community.” – Pratheepan Kumaran, 2008-2009 recipient of the Durham Region Chairman’s Award
“Receiving this award means a lot less stress about finances. I can quit one of my part-time jobs without worrying, which will enable me to focus more on school. This award means I can finish paying for tuition and buy books that I was going to have to try to do without. This award means more than I can explain on paper or even in words.” – Damara Fletcher, 2008-2009 Canadian Federation of University Women Oshawa and District Bursary recipient “I truly love working with people, especially children, and am grateful for this award which has helped bring me closer to achieving my goal of being a pediatric nurse. This award has alleviated financial burden and stress that comes with completing a Bachelor degree. Thank you so much, your donation truly means a lot to me!” – Jennifer Hepworth, 2009-2010 Surgical Suite Memorial Award recipient “This award is a great help towards my education expenses. Now I can focus on my studies rather than being worried about my finances.” – Mohammad Rubyet Islam, 2008-2009 recipient of the Nathan and Marvin Goldman/ Durham Homes Graduate Scholarship
“Receiving this award is definitely a stress relief. It will provide me with more financial comfort during the semester so I will not have to worry as much about school fees and work hours, and focus more on my studies. It also relieves the worry about asking my parents for money and the stress I know it would cause them. Thank you so much for your generosity. Rest assured, it is greatly appreciated.” – Christina Johnson, 2008-2009 recipient of the Robert Darou Norris Prichard Award
“Essentially it is because of people like you that students are motivated to help others in their school/ local community, succeeding academically, and truly making the most of their university career. I would like to thank you again for choosing me as a recipient for this award as well as for recognizing my achievements. It is because of this award that I continue to push myself to make the most out of my extracurricular and academic experiences, as well as achieve all of my goals to the fullest.” – Christine Dabrowski, 2009-2010 Herman Kassinger Award recipient
UOIT receives $300,000 bequest
Harold ‘Pat’ Dooley, a man passionate about education and a steadfast supporter of UOIT and its students, has left a $300,000 bequest to the university that will keep his spirit alive on campus and in the hearts of students for years to come. Mr. Dooley passed away on November 15, 2009 at the remarkable age of 103. “Mr. Dooley was an incredible man and he will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him,” said MaryLynn West-Moynes, vice-president, External Relations. “He understood the importance of investing in education and the leaders of tomorrow. His incredible generosity will enable many UOIT students to focus on their studies and their career goals. We are deeply grateful to receive this legacy gift and because of it many more students will benefit from his support and will go on to make a difference in the world.” An electrician by trade, Mr. Dooley worked and lived across North America. He retired from Lasco Steel (now Gerdau Ameristeel) when he was 74 years old and settled in Oshawa, Ontario. Throughout his career and well into his retirement he was an active member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) and attended many of the organization’s activities. Never married and without children of his own, he adopted the IBEW as his family. In honour of his gift, the Harold ‘Pat’ Dooley Endowed Education Fund was created to provide eligible students with financial assistance so they can acquire the real-world and high-tech skills needed to meet the demands of the knowledge-based economy. An application for matching funds was made to the Ontario Trust for Student Support, to create a permanent endowment of $600,000. When asked his secret to living well, Mr. Dooley once said “I just keep thinking about doing more for the kids. That’s what keeps me going.” Many of those ‘kids’ will achieve their goals because Pat Dooley never lost sight of his.
“He understood the importance of investing in education and the leaders of tomorrow.”
Look at us grow
As one of Canada’s youngest and most dynamic universities, UOIT is rapidly growing in reputation and in enrolment at the undergraduate and graduate levels. To address that growth and ensure our students continue to have access to an outstanding learning environment, UOIT has established a downtown Oshawa location and added new classrooms, labs, study areas and state-of-the-art learning facilities at our north Oshawa location. On June 13, 2011 UOIT celebrated the grand opening of ACE, providing faculty, staff, students and industry partners with access to what will be the first research, development and innovation centre of its kind in Canada, and in many respects the world. Among its many design and testing features, the 16,300-square-metre centre will offer a full range of testing facilities that allow for full climatic, durability and lifecycle testing, including one of the largest and most sophisticated climatic wind tunnels on the planet. Another exciting project nearing completion is the new Energy Research Centre (ERC), a 9,290-sq.-m. training and research facility, also scheduled to open in 2011. The ERC will serve as the premier training ground for future energy scientists and nuclear engineers while enabling leading-edge research in the development of clean and green energy and technology. UOIT has also taken a step back in time reopening the Regent Theatre, a historic landmark in downtown Oshawa. The university took ownership of the theatre in November 2009 and immediately began assessing what refurbishment and renovation work was needed to restore the theatre to its former glory. Students enjoy the Regent as a large lecture theatre and for community and cultural events during the evenings and on weekends throughout the year. In addition, our Faculty of Social Science and Humanities recently joined the Faculty of Education at our expanding downtown Oshawa location. Now more than 1,300 students and staff attend class and work in the city core. Bordessa Hall is a brand new, 2,790-sq.-m., five-storey administrative building that houses classrooms, a student lounge, meeting rooms and offices. The newly refurbished building at 61 Charles Street, formerly the Alger Press building, is home to a Social Science library, classrooms, student study space, the Registrar’s office, a café and much more. To learn more about how you can support further growth at UOIT, please contact Clive Waugh, executive director, Advancement at 905.721.3051 or email@example.com.

“My husband and I were always extremely pleased whenever we could make contributions to furthering access to or improving education over the years. Leaving the home in which we shared so many wonderful years together to UOIT will ensure many young men and women will benefit and be able to fulfil their dreams and goals for a bright future.”

Message from the vice-president, External Relations
One of the strategies I use on a weekly basis to remind myself about what is really important at UOIT is to buy myself a cup of coffee. While this may seem like a bizarre statement, it really is a wonderful way to experience the buzz created by our students. Entering the cafeteria, you only need to look around to see the aspirations, diversity, hard work and energy of the students, faculty and staff at the university. Some display smidgens of fatigue after a long day or night of studying, while others are laughing with friends or deep in thought as they sit with a cup of coffee trying to drown out the hum that surrounds them and work on an assignment. It’s your generous donations that bring this buzz and incredible energy to life on our campus. It was just two years ago that it was decided that UOIT would establish an External Relations department. Our team connects with potential students and builds relationships with alumni; helps drive UOIT’s innovative research and academic agendas by working with members of the government and donors; creates a challenging and rewarding student experience; and establishes strong partnerships with organizations and communities on behalf of our students and staff. So the next time you sit over a cup of coffee, tea or other libation, I hope you know and understand how much we value our donors and how significant you are to the success of each and every one of our students. Sincerely,
MaryLynn West-Moynes Vice-president, External Relations
