Diverse group of alumni holding signs that say Queen's Alumni and QUAA Awards Gala

QUAA Awards Gala 2023

Kingston, ON

The QUAA Awards Gala returns to Kingston. The evening offers all alumni the chance to take part in the QUAA's marquee event with in-person and virtual options designed to bring the entire community together.  

Virtual guests can join from 7-8 pm ET to celebrate with the recipients as they receive their awards from Principal and Vice-Chancellor Patrick Deane and to engage with those online and in-person in Kingston. 

In-person festivities will take place from 6-9 pm ET in the Bioscience Complex Atrium. Guests will enjoy cocktails and hors d'oeuvres as we pay tribute to the award recipients and the impactful contributions of our alumni community. In-person guests are encouraged to wear cocktail attire. 

The 2023 award recipients 

An evening to mark the important, measurable contributions alumni make in their local and global communities, the QUAA Awards Gala is also a moment to honour the leadership and efforts of our distinguished award recipients. In both their professional careers and in their volunteer work, the award recipients serve as reminders of the impactful change Queen’s alumni make around the world. This year’s ceremony will also feature the 2023 Agnes Benidickson Tricolour Awards recipients for their contributions to service, leadership, character, and community impact.
