Sodexo is donating $30,000 to the University’s Jeannine Deveau Educational Equity Endowment Scholarship Fund.  The donation actually doubles to $60,000, due to the Deveau Fund’s matching clause.  The fund was created two years ago thanks to an $8 million donation from 1944 graduate Jeannine Deveau. It’s aim is to make education more accessible for members of the African Nova Scotian and First Nations communities.
