Invites Nominations for
The President's Award of Excellence
The President's Award of Excellence was established in 1993 to recognize students who have demonstrated a commitment to the University's belief
in excellence in its student body.
The Selection Committee may present up to three awards annually. Each
award will be a President's Student Medal of Excellence and the recipient
will have his/her name inscribed on a commemorative plaque displayed
permanently in the University Centre.
Nominations are open to full-time undergraduate students who are in their graduating year.
This award acknowledges the contributions made by students who play
a significant role in improving and developing the intellectual, social,
cultural and/or athletic fabric of the McMaster community. The
Selection Committee will consider those nominees who have demonstrated
outstanding student leadership qualities. The award will be presented
on the basis of how the nominees' achievements have contributed to the
betterment of the University community and to the advantage of the students
who attend the campus. The overall quality of the contribution
rather than the achievement of a certain status or position will be
the determining factor for the committee to arrive at a final decision. In
addition, the individuals selected to receive an award may also have
extensive involvement in our local, provincial or national communities.
Five members of the McMaster Community comprise the Selection
Committee and choose the Award recipient(s).
- The President of McMaster University (Chair)
- The Provost and Vice-President (Academic)
- The Associate Vice-President (Students and Learning) and Dean of Students
- A distinguished alumna/alumnus
- A person familiar with the McMaster University environment appointed
by the President
