Award of $1,000 to a Canada academic for demonstrating excellence in the three main aspects of academic life: research, teaching, and service to the community and the institution. The award will recognize an individual who has significantly contributed to the lives of students, to their field of study, and to the community.

The award will be presented at the Spring CAUT Council. The recipient will be invited to give an address to Council. The address will be subsequently published by CAUT.



The recipient will receive a $1,000 honorarium with the award.

Nominations for the Award may be submitted by individuals, member associations, or others.

The deadline for nominations is August 31, 2017.

Nominators should submit a letter explaining the rationale for the nomination and give detailed information about the nominee’s record in teaching, research and service. It is essential that the nominator provide information for each of these three areas as excellence in all three is a requirement for eligibility for the Award. The nominator should also include documentation that would help the jury in its decision making. It is the responsibility of the nominators to provide all necessary information, as the jury will review only the material it receives.

Nominations will be adjudicated by a jury approved by CAUT Council. The jury’s recommendation will be made to the Fall Council for approval.
