The Department of Adult Education at St. Francis Xavier University was delighted this past weekend as two adult educators were honorary doctorate recipients from StFX, Dr. Budd Hall and Emily Joy Sikazwe from Zambia, a graduate of our Master of Adult Education program.

The Department of Adult Education, CASAE (Atlantic), and the Coady International Institute organized a conference to honour the recipients. Dr. Darlene Clover made an excellent presentation, An International Comparative Study of Women's Nonformal and Informal Political Education, a comparison of the situation in India and Canada. This was followed by a dynamic presentation by Dr. Budd Hall, Knowledge, Equality and Prosperity: University Partnerships & the World We Want.

St FX faculty members, students and members of the Coady International Institute, and members of the Antigonish community attended the conference. We want to offer special thanks to Drs. Patti Gouthro and Susan Brigham and a group of their students from Mount St. Vincent University who drove from Halifax to join us for the conference. It was a wonderful opportunity for adult educators to gather together.

We now want to share with the wider community of adult educators the excellent speeches Budd and Emily made during Convocation. It was a wonderful moment for adult education at our university and we congratulate Budd & Emily!
