Alumni Awards Gala

2019 Alumni Awards Gala

The Queen's University Alumni Association (QUAA) Gala Awards is a celebration of Queen’s spirit– the drive for both academic and non-academic excellence, the passion to make a difference in our communities, and the selfless contribution to the Queen’s community. 

The award recipients are made up of a diverse group of people, many of whom are leaders in their own communities, across Canada and around the world. Each alumni award carries a unique significance that joins the most recent recipients to those who came before them and were celebrated for their accomplishments and contributions to the Queen’s community and society. Past recipients include NASA astronaut Andrew Feustel, PhD’95; former Princeton University president Shirley Tilghman, Arts’68, DSc’02; MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi, Artsci'94, LLD'16; and former Member of Parliament and “father of the Canadian flag” John Matheson, Arts’40, LLD’84.

As a member of the Queen’s community and extended community, we welcome all nominations for next year’s alumni awards and encourage you to join the Queen’s University Alumni Association in celebrating the immense contributions of our alumni, students, faculty and volunteers.
