2018 Arts awards in teaching and research announced
The Faculty of Arts is pleased to announce this year’s winners of the annual Faculty Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching Awards and Faculty Excellence in Research Awards.
In each category, there are two winners selected: one in the category of probationary or term faculty, and another in the category of tenured or continuing appointments.

The Faculty of Arts puts out a call for nominations and then convenes two award selection committees made up of volunteer faculty members. Winners received a certificate and honorarium at a celebratory Arts Council Meeting, and each winner stepped forward to share either teaching position statements or research excerpts, dependent on category.
The Dean of Arts would like to thank those who served on the award committees and those who did the work of nominating the worthy applicants.
