Denniston-Stewart was a beloved and highly respected member of the Queen’s community. Throughout her distinguished career in Student Affairs, she served as the Associate Dean, Student Services and Community Relations, and as the Student and Enrolment Services Manager at the BISC.

Her work at the BISC furthered her belief in the transformational effect of a global experience for students.

Denniston-Stewart passed away in August 2019, leaving behind a legacy of unparalleled advocacy, compassion and commitment to the student experience.

The Roxy Denniston-Stewart Memorial Bursary was established last year to help support incoming BISC students and to make this unique experience more accessible and affordable.

The auction will be held from 12-5 pm at the BISC and is open to all students, faculty, and staff.
