Past Award Recipients

Congratulations to the recipients of the 2020 Distinguished Service Awards. Due to our current circumstances, we were unable to host our annual in-person ceremony this past summer. We look forward to gathering as a community when we are able to do so safely.

 
To all honourees, on behalf of the entire UTSC community, please accept our best wishes, gratitude and appreciation for the excellence and leadership which you demonstrate every day.
