John B. Stewart

Professor Emeritus in Education

Encaenia Ceremony B, May 18, 2011

John Stewart has made significant contributions to the University of New Brunswick in teaching, scholarship and service as well as to the broader field of counseling psychology in Canada and internationally.

From the time he arrived at UNB in 1990, Dr. Stewart worked tirelessly to build a coherent and substantial master of education program in counseling psychology.  Well regarded as both a classroom teacher and graduate supervisor, he incorporated innovation in his courses and was nominated several times for teaching awards by students.

Dr. Stewart has proven himself as a scholar.  Through his numerous refereed publications and presentations he has done much to advance the field of counseling psychology in Canada and abroad.

Not only has he admirably fulfilled his teaching duties, he also has taken on the duties of director of graduate studies for his division and director of UNB’s Bhutan project.  As such, he greatly expanded UNB’s presence and influence in that country.  He also had a major impact on the developing field of career counselling in Bhutan.

In each role that he has undertaken, he has been committed to doing the best job possible.

Dr. Stewart retired in 2007 after nearly 20 years of exemplary service at UNB and remains a presence in the faculty continuing to teach in the master of education program.
