Awards Committee


AC serves as Council’s primary advisory group on award initiatives, issues, and activities. The committee’s overarching mandate is to support the reward and recognition of excellence across the Faculty of Science. The committee will identify, develop, support, and promote applications for internal and external awards for students (graduate and undergraduate), faculty members (professorial and Instructor streams), and support staff. The committee is also charged with advising Council with how it can best recognize its contributors both internally and externally.
