Coady Chair in Social Justice
The Coady Chair in Social Justice honours the spirit of Dr. Rev. Moses Coady and the leaders of the Antigonish Movement by bridging local and global concerns, involving the community, and encouraging an interdisciplinary approach to issues. The Chair is an important means to deepen St. Francis Xavier (StFX) University’s commitment to its service to society’s mission, to develop student’s understanding and sense of social responsibility, and to support the Coady International Institute as a centre for global citizen leadership and social justice at StFX. Key elements of the Chair include public presentations, seminars and workshops held on campus by thought leaders/activists that bring students, faculty, community members and citizen-leaders together for shared learning.
We welcome nominations for the 2019 Coady Chair in Social Justice at StFX throughout the year. Nominations are kept on file for 5 years with all nominations reviewed for the upcoming year.
