Please join me in congratulating Anne-Marie Ryan for being the recipient of this year's Anne Marie MacKinnon Educational Leadership Award, presented by the Association of Atlantic Universities.  To quote from Dal today "The award recognizes sustained commitment to the improvement of university teaching and learning, as well as leadership among faculty colleagues in helping create an environment that fosters and supports teaching excellence.".


Well done Anne-Marie!
