Dalhousie Legacy Awards
The Dalhousie Legacy Awards recognize a number of university-wide awards, selected for their alignment with our Strategic Priorities.
The Legacy Awards, introduced in 2018 as part of the university's 200th anniversary celebrations, assists in helping Dalhousie create a culture of respect and recognition for employees at all levels. Recognition is part of our Strategic Initiative 5.1, focusing on developing a human resource strategy to attract, reward and retain faculty and staff.
The Legacy Awards event will be held on June 20, 2018 in the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium, with a reception to follow in the Sculpture Court.
