Awards

We honour our graduates and families with two special awards. The Michael Nightingale Community Enrichment Award and Families of the Year Award are administered each year at the Convocation ceremony held in June.

Michael Nightingale Community Enrichment Award

This annual award has been established to honour Michael Nightingale, who served as the first Vice-Provost and Chief Academic Officer at the University of Guelph-Humber from 2001 to 2005. Throughout his tenure, Michael’s vision and dedication were critical in shaping both the academic and co-curricular environments at the University of Guelph-Humber.

This award is presented to a graduating student who has made significant contributions to the University of Guelph-Humber community, beyond their own program of study, and shares Michael Nightingale’s commitment to enriching the student experience at the University. The award consists of a certificate of honour, a permanent plaque displayed in the University of Guelph-Humber building, and a cash prize of $1,000.

Nominations for the 2017 Michael Nightingale Community Enrichment Award are now closed.

Families of the Year Award

A family fosters strong, positive relationships and mutual support. These are important values at the University of Guelph-Humber.

This award recognizes the contributions made by families to student success and to the entire university community.

The recipients are recognized with priority seating at Convocation and a permanent plaque displayed in the University of Guelph-Humber building.

Nominations for the 2017 Families of the Year Award are now closed.
