Maureen Dey



Honouring a lifetime of service at Seneca

In the fall of 1979, Maureen Dey was working as a substitute teacher when Seneca came calling. She interviewed for a teaching job and was in the classroom the next day. This part-time position was the modest beginning to a distinguished 29-year career at the College.

Maureen would go on to serve as a professor, coordinator, academic chair, associate dean, and, ultimately, Dean, Faculty of Business—the position she held upon her retirement in 2008.

“The size of the College and its diversity made it possible to pursue opportunities from within,” says Maureen. “And I always had great support from my colleagues.”

Maureen’s strong, ongoing connection to Seneca led her to include a legacy gift to the College in her will in support of financial aid. Maureen, a longtime donor to Seneca, was inspired by her late colleague and friend, Jim Streeter, who also made a bequest to Seneca.

“Seneca has given me a great life,” says Maureen. “I want to give back.”
