Nominate a Queen’s hero

Do you know someone who has worked tirelessly in support of Queen’s and deserves recognition? Consider nominating them for a Queen’s Distinguished Service Award.

First awarded in 1974, the Distinguished Service Awards are presented annually in May at the University Council meeting and dinner. The 176 recipients to date include alumni, staff, faculty members, former principals, retirees, donors and friends – all of whom have in some way helped to make the university a better place.

Although the deadline is a few months away on February 4, 2011, the selection committee would like people to start thinking about submitting and preparing a nomination before the holiday season ramps up over the next few weeks.

All alumni and members of University Council (this includes members of Senate and the Board of Trustees) are invited to nominate candidates. Other university community members with nomination suggestions are encouraged to contact a representative. Membership lists are posted on the University Secretariat website under the Senate, Board and University Council categories.

For details and nomination forms, you can visit this website, email or call (613) 533-6095.
