Above and beyond
Each year, Memorial University recognizes individuals that demonstrate excellence in teaching and graduate supervision with a series of four President’s Awards.
These awards honour faculty members and instructors who have varied professional experience, but a few outstanding traits in common.
They stimulate intellectual excitement in students, and facilitate their education and academic progress in a way that transforms students’ learning, career paths and lives.
On top of that, these educators shine with their contributions to a progressive teaching and learning environment, making a positive impact on students and others in the university community.
The photo essay in this Gazette article introduces the 2019 recipients, with quotes from former students that highlight the impact they make through their teaching and supervision.
