Awards and Recognition

Awards and honours are an important means of recognizing the contributions of York's outstanding faculty, staff, students, and alumni.  The Provost chairs the Prestigious Awards Committee, which maintains an inventory of a range of awards available to faculty and encourages the nomination of colleagues for various awards, as well as the celebration of the recipients of such awards.
