Retirement Announcement

Posted by Office of the Vice President Research on March 5, 2018 in General Announcements

The Office of the Vice President Research and Dalhousie Research Services announce the retirement of two long- serving staff members – Donna Gaudet and Pat Rodee.

After nearly 28 years with Dalhousie University, Donna Gaudet will depart in early March.  Donna began her career at Dal in 1990, working with Ian Nason in Financial Services.  In 1999, she joined the Office of the Vice President Research and has been there ever since, faithfully and patiently providing administrative support and guidance to five acting and full-term Vice Presidents Research (Dixon, Breckenridge, Crago, Newhook, Aiken).  

Pat Rodee's career in international development and international research has spanned over three decades, beginning in the late 1980s.  As Director of Lester Pearson International (LPI) and later the International Research & Development (IR&D) Unit of Dalhousie Research Services, Pat has worked tirelessly to support Dalhousie researchers in their international endeavours and to promote Dalhousie overseas.

These two staff members will be dearly and greatly missed.  If you would like to send retirement wishes to Pat or Donna please contact them directly at and
