2005-06-03

 On 25.05.2005 the Berlin Sport Scientist and President of the International Council of Sport Science and Physical Education (ICSSPE), Gudrun Doll-Tepper, received a Doctor of Laws - honoris causa from the Memorial University of Newfoundland.

 

The oration held before the members and guests of one of the most important universities on the Canadian Atlantic coast, recognised the work of Gudrun Doll-Tepper to overcome boundaries with Sport and Physical Education and to bring together people irrespective of religion, social class, gender or disabilities, as well as to push social, political and economical development. "Dr. Doll-Tepper, the President of the International Council of Sport Science and Physical Education, took down walls of inequity and intolerance between countries in the North and South, between academics of the third and first worlds, and between athletes with and without disabilities",  said Professor T.A. Loeffler, from the Memorial University of Newfoundland, in his speech.

Before the background of her voluntary activities as President of the International Council of Sport Science and Physical Education Gudrun Doll Tepper stressed the meaning of taking over social responsibility:  "As professionals we aim to persue a successful career. However, it is also important - from my perspective - to make a contribution to society ...  I have learned that many successful careers come from a very solid education and seizing the many, sometimes small opportunities, that life presents.  Being involved in professional and volunteer activities exposes you to those opportunities  ... From my own experience I know that many problems can be solved only by a global perspective and with help of specialised knowledge of different scientific disciplines, political institutions as well as practical experiences."

Gudrun Doll-Tepper explained further that she sees this award as an achievement of successful team work and referred to the global, in many parts voluntary structure of the international ICSSPE network, colleagues, students and the full-time staff from the Executive Office of the organisation in Berlin.
