Jane Errington to be honoured with Distinguished Service Award

Professor Jane Errington has been selected to receive a 2023 Distinguished Service Award in recognition of her outstanding service to Queen's University.

Created by the University Council in 1974, the Distinguished Service Awards recognize individuals who have made Queen's a better place through their contributions. 

Professor Jane Errington joined the Queen's History department in 1996. Professor Errington teaches the history of colonial North America. Her courses at Queen's and her own work explore issues of identity and the creation and development of colonial settler societies.

She is the recipient of many awards and honours, including an Honorary Doctorate of Laws from RMC, the Award for Excellence in Graduate Supervision at Queen's, and the Albert B. Corey Prize for her book The Lion, the Eagle and Upper Canada (McGill-Queen's University Press, 1985).
