Call for nominations: Student Leadership Awards

Wednesday, January 16, 2019 - 1:45pm to Monday, February 25, 2019 - 12:00am

​OCAD University's annual Student Recognition and Leadership Awards Dinner celebrates students excellence outside the classroom, and acknowledges their commitment to equity, advocacy, social justice, student life and fellowship.

This year the Campus Life office is thrilled to let the community know that we have grown our portfolio of awards by creating three new opportunities to recognize students who have given so much of themselves to our community.

In addition to our long-standing awards recognizing Peer Mentors, Student Group Leaders, and students committed to Diversity & Equity, this year we have added an Indigenous Student Leadership Award, an Excellence in Student Leadership Award, and a Student Employee Excellence Award. 

All of these awards rely on nominations from the community, so please take a few moments to consider nominating a peer that has influenced your experience at OCAD U. They could win not only this important recognition, but also a cash prize! The deadline to submit your nomination(s) is 11:59 p.m. Monday, February 25, 2019. Links to each nomination form are included below.
