- Team player led way in youth worker education
- Maunders, David; MacKenzie, David
- Dr Dawn Goodwin, who made an outstanding contribution to the education of youth workers at RMIT, as well as in other forms of teaching, has died of secondary cancer in hospital in Sydney, aged 72. Goodwin, a nun in the Sisters of Mercy order, played a significant part in the development of the Centre for Youth Affairs Research and Development at RMIT, as well other projects and degree programs that are used not only in Australia (by indigenous and remote students) but in South Africa, Papua New Guinea, Fiji and New Zealand (by Maori and Pacific Islander students). Many of her colleagues and students in Melbourne had no idea of her religious vocation as she wore secular dress, and while she was devoted to her faith, she never sought to use it in any way. Always a team player, her commitment to the education of her students was paramount.
