Making a difference

This week 20 faculty and staff, nominated by their colleagues, will receive 'U Make A Difference' awards at the University's annual Recognition Awards Reception.

"The 'U Make A Difference' award program has helped to promote and support a culture of recognition at the U of C for the past four years," says Rob Armstrong, associate vice-president of Human Resources. "This program provides the opportunity for faculty and staff to formally recognize each other's efforts and contributions."
