Rosemary Gill Awards

Committed to service

In June of 1995 the President approved the establishment of the Rosemary Gill Award in memory of Dr. Rosemary Gill, Director of Student Health Services, who exemplified a high level of commitment of service to students, both in terms of her responsibilities as a physician on campus and as a member of the larger University community.

Awards are presented annually to a member or members of faculty or staff of the University who have provided outstanding service, other than teaching, to students. Up to four awards can be made each year. An individual may only receive the Rosemary Gill Award once. The selection of recipients is made by a committee consisting of the President; the Vice-Provost, Student Affairs; a member of the Academic and Student Affairs Committee of the Board of Governors; and a student appointed by the Dalhousie Student Union.

The Rosemary Gill Award is a plaque presented to the recipient at a spring reception hosted by the President. In addition, a permanent plaque bearing the names of annual recipients is displayed in the Henry Hicks Academic Administration Building.
