    Leitmotif

    2015

    Life is full of recurring themes that echo and reverberate, beginning with when we were infants and continuing through our childhoods, adolescences and all the phases of our adult life. These leitmotifs weave in and out of our daily lives, providing a backdrop, a narrative, and an accompaniment to the ever-present and ever-changing warp and woof of our evolution.

    For the 2015 edition of Mace, we asked the SGU community to tell us about the leitmotifs in their lives, through an article, photo, poem, sketch, or anything else. These themes, from our students, graduates, faculty, and staff, are on full display herein.

  • Connections

    2014

    In this edition of Mace, St. George’s University celebrates the camaraderie, the collective efforts, and the friendships that link our students, faculty and staff, and graduates. With each class of students come new connections that in many cases last far beyond the boundaries of the Spice Isle, as friends, colleagues, even spouses.

    These connections are at the core of SGU’s story, which spans more than 35 years in Grenada. We wanted to hear about who or what led you to SGU, or the connections you brought with you to the next chapter in life, and the University community responded with an array of stories and poems illustrating the network of people, personalities, and events that are part of the University’s fabric.

  • Vision

    2013

    Vision. It leads man to create a future out of the present; to leave the nest and fly into the unknown; to see something that does not exist and endeavor to make it so. Without the capacity of vision, we would all be hunkering, cold and hungry, in our endless dark caves. We have hopes for ourselves, hopes for our children, hopes for our friends and our communities, and hope for mankind. All of this hope rests on the capacity to visualize a different tomorrow.

    In 1976, the founders of St. George’s University had a vision. Each of you has a vision for yourselves. Our days are full of great visions for an articulated future, and small visions of human interaction and apprehensions of nature and life in general.

    Mace 2013 is a compilation of these visions.

  • Journey

    2011

    In the Mace 2011, faculty, staff, alumni, students, and friends of the University share their literary, pictorial, and artistic interpretations of their individual journeys. This issue reflects upon the paths they have chosen to follow in their lives and depicts their professional and personal sojourns—ones St. George’s University might have contributed to in a small or large part.

  • Tending to Our Roots

    2010

    As St. George’s University embarks on this new decade, it has embraced and successfully implemented
    a myriad of technological communication systems that continue to improve the way we communicate with ourselves, our wider SGU community, and the world in general.

    And while the new avenues of communication are a critical component to our growth and success, we have not lost sight of the founding principles that established St. George’s University as a global center of academic excellence. In 1977, our mission was clear and unprecedented, and in the 33 years that have followed we have never waivered from our highest purpose, to develop the intellectual capacity, creativity, and professionalism of our truly international student body.

    The selection of “Tending to Our Roots” as this year’s theme for Mace 2010 serves to preserve and honor the principles that helped guide our 8,700 graduates to prolific careers in medicine, veterinary medicine, research, and business, and other professions.

  • Transformation

    2008

    The University is pleased to present the fourth edition of The Mace showcasing the creativity and inventiveness of the SGU community. With over 30 years of history, St. George’s University has transformed from a small, innovative medical school into a global center of education. This year’s theme of “Transformation” invited the SGU community to reflect on their own growth and experiences. It is in the breadth of transformation that we find inspiration.

    This year’s publication has compiled original essays, fiction, poems, photography and works of art. Contributors are from all areas of the University, including alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends of the SGU community.

  • Success

    2007

    The third annual edition of The Mace concludes St. George’s University’s 30th Anniversary year celebration.

    After 30 years of continual growth and commitment to our University community, the theme of “Success” is befitting. Contributions from alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends of the University showcase the myriad ways in which we define success. Whether saving lives, reaching out in the community, or simply writing a poem, the literary pieces compiled express a motivation
