Grace Desa, Medieval Studies — Distinguished Service Award

Grace Desa has served as graduate administrator at the Centre for Medieval Studies for 29 years. Desa has worked with eight different directors and each one credits her with supreme competence. All who work with her appreciate her vivacity, joie de vivre and teasing sense of humour. In the words of one colleague: “Grace is the ever-present, ever-helpful, and always cordial human face of the Centre for Medieval Studies. The unit is famous for its outstanding Latin and palaeography programs but it is also famous for its Grace.”
