McGill University Lifetime Achievement Award for Leadership in Learning

The McGill University Lifetime Achievement Award for Leadership in Learning recognizes sustained excellence in leadership and innovation, as well as the active integration of teaching and learning with inquiry, scholarship and research. Nominations for this award must come from Faculty Deans, but all faculty members, students, former students, and others are encouraged to bring forward names of colleagues and professors whose long-term achievements and contributions to learning at McGill are truly outstanding.

This unique form of recognition brings with it a monetary award. Recipients may also be invited to deliver a public lecture on a topic related to teaching, and/or be invited to speak at convocation.


Call for Nominations

The nomination period for the 2018 Award is now closed. Please note that we anticipate launching the call for nominations for the 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award for Leadership in Learning in March 2019.
