We are honoured to announce the Janet Person Environmental Law Centre Endowment Fund. We are deeply moved that Janet’s family chose to create this wonderful legacy that creates an ongoing endowment in support of the Clinic program. In addition to being UVic Law’s much loved Admissions Officer for decades (who likely admitted most of you alumni), Janet was a long-time monthly ELC donor, and she even brought us great projects. We are so thankful, and we invite you to join us in supporting this lovely initiative.
We can’t say it any better than her family did:
Janet Person Environmental Law Centre Endowment:
Janet was a passionate ambassador for the university, and was proud to include the work of the Environmental Law Centre when she spoke to potential Law student applicants about what UVic had to offer. Janet also spoke eloquently about the important work the ELC has accomplished with her peers, her family and the wider community. Janet understood our collective responsibility to be good stewards of our environment. Her concern for our fish, water and birds was nurtured from an early age, growing up in a home with a well-developed environmental consciousness. Part of the legacy she leaves behind is an invitation for us all to do what we can to tangibly demonstrate love, respect and support for our environment. This fund, established in her name, with great love and affection, aims to do that.
