2016 Dalhousie University Governors' Awards ‑ Call for Nominations

Posted by Office of the Vice-Provost, Student Affairs on January 7, 2016 in General Announcements


In 1992, to mark the 125th anniversary of the founding of the Dalhousie Student Union, and to recognize students' contribution to the quality and vitality of the University, the Board of Governors established a set of awards to be known as Governors' Awards.

Up to four awards can be made each year, for exceptional contributions or leadership in the extracurricular realm in such areas as university governance, development of a sense of community on campus, community service, internationalizing the campus, visual or performing arts, minority access or athletics. To be eligible, students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 or equivalent. Otherwise, all students - undergraduate, graduate or professional faculty student, full or part-time, at any stage in their academic career - may be considered for an award.

Recipients are chosen by a committee consisting of the President, three members of the Board of Governors and the Vice-Provost, Student Affairs. Nominations are invited, but the committee may consider other persons as well. Awards, in the form of a plaque, are presented annually in the spring by the Chair of the Board or designate at the annual Impact Awards Gala Evening.

Nominations should include a written description of the student nominee's contribution to the University and up to three letters of support.

Nominations close Friday, January 15, 2016, 4 p.m.

To assist you in planning your submission, a nomination form can be found at: dal.ca/governorsawards.
