Campus bench to commemorate late nursing professor Sheila Cameron

Colleagues of Sheila Cameron have launched a campaign to solicit donations for a campus bench to honour Dr. Cameron, who died in January after a career that included appointments as a University Professor in nursing, director of the UWindsor School of Nursing, and dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research.

Donors have already endowed a scholarship for undergraduate nursing students in Cameron’s memory; this latest project has been initiated by her teaching colleagues.

The bench is slated for placement near the bubbling fountain outside the entrance to Leddy Library and will bear a plaque in Cameron’s name. The fundraising goal of $1,500 will cover its installation, plaque and lifetime maintenance.

Donations may be made by credit card or payroll deduction online at In the “Amount” section, indicate “This is a gift in honour/memory of” and type “Sheila Cameron.” In the “Designations” section, select “Other” and type “Dr. Sheila Cameron Campus Bench.”
