Re: Recommendation of Dr. Senada Delic for the SFU Outstanding Alumni Award

 

Dear Committee:

 

It is an honour and my distinct pleasure to endorse the nomination of Dr. Senada Delic for your Outstanding Alumni Award.

 

Dr. Delic had the misfortune to share the destiny with me and many other now Canadians who fled to Canada to escape ethnic cleansing during the 1992-1995 aggression on Bosnia and Herzegovina. Dr. Delic is an exceptional example among the survivors because she refused to surrender to the challenges that come with that life experience and instead opted to continue pursuing her education in Canada and making various contributions for the betterment of the larger society.

 

Her intellectual contributions on public policy issues concerning vulnerable population groups in Canada are a source of pride in our community and her public policy advising on issues related to public administration in Canada played an integral part in our long campaign to have Canada join the international community in formally recognizing genocide that occurred in Bosnia and Herzegovina and establishing July 11 as a Srebrenica Remembrance Day, to honour the victims of Srebrenica massacre.

 

Dr. Delic now serves as a valuable International Expert Team Council Member with our Institute for Research of Genocide where we work on raising awareness about the tragic events that took place, primarily but not exclusively in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which involved gross violations of human rights and unresolved war crimes carried out in Bosnia and Herzegovina from 1992 to 1995.

 

Aside from her remarkable academic accomplishments, I believe that her exemplary leadership and her contributions in protecting human rights around the world make her an outstanding graduate of your institution and that is why I consider it an honour to support her nomination for the Award.

 

Sincerely,
