The Desautels Faculty of Management Teaching Award Fund

The Pitch

Help the Desautels Faculty of Management support the work of inspiring professors by creating The Desautels Faculty of Management Teaching Award Fund in honour of Morty Yalovsky and Henry Mintzberg, two wonderful teachers who are each celebrating 50 years at McGill in 2018. This new fund will be presented awards to Desautels professors who have shown excellence in teaching.


The Highlights

We all understand firsthand the impact great teachers can have on their students. To celebrate two outstanding Desautels professors who have motivated their students and represented McGill on a global stage, we ask for your help in creating The Desautels Faculty of Management Teaching Award Fund, which will recognize exceptional teachers at the Desautels Faculty of Management. Each year, the award recipients will be nominated by students and chosen by a selection committee.

The Story

50 years ago, McGill had the good fortune of welcoming Professors Morty Yalovsky and Henry Mintzberg onboard as employees.

In addition to his teaching and research, Professor Yalovsky has held numerous leadership positions at Desautels and McGill over the last five decades. Known for his dedication and kindness to students, alumni, and colleagues, Professor Yalovsky epitomizes the culture that McGill has built and sustained.

Renowned Professor Henry Mintzberg continues to be a prime contributor to the outstanding global reputation of McGill. A creative scholar who frequently challenges conventional thinking, Professor Mintzberg is an inspiring role model for students and alumni around the world.

To recognize their roles at McGill for the last 50 years, and ensure that their legacies remain for the next 50, the Desautels Faculty of Management would like to establish The Desautels Faculty of Management Teaching Award Fund in honour of Morty Yalovsky and Henry Mintzberg. Your contribution will fund teaching awards that will be presented annually to Desautels professors who have shown excellence in teaching. With your help, we can support the next generation of inspiring teachers.
