Nominations open for Distinguished Service Awards

Faculty, staff and retirees are invited to nominate candidates for a Queen’s Distinguished Service Award. Inaugurated by the University Council in 1974, this award recognizes individuals who have made the university a better place through their extraordinary contributions. Recipients become honorary life members of University Council.

Recent changes to the University Council bylaws now enable Queen’s employees and retirees to nominate recipients, who will be recognized at the University Council annual dinner on Saturday, Nov. 5.  

The guidelines, the nomination form and additional information are available on the University Secretariat website.

Please submit nominations to the University Council executive committee, care of the University Secretariat, by Friday, April 29 at 4 pm. 

Please contact the University Secretariat at ucouncil@queensu.ca or (613) 533-6095 if you have questions about the Distinguished Service Award or the nomination process.
