President's University Wide Teaching Awards

The President's University-wide Teaching Awards recognize the accomplishments of York's great instructors. The annual awards are presented in four categories:

  • Members of the senior full time faculty;
  • Full-time faculty members who have been at York for less than ten years;
  • Contract faculty; and
  • Teaching Assistants.

The purpose of the awards is to provide significant recognition for such excellence, to encourage its pursuit, to publicize such excellence when achieved across the University and in the wider community, and to promote informed discussion of teaching and its improvement. The awards demonstrate the value York University attaches to teaching and recognizes those who, through innovation and commitment, have significantly enhanced the quality of learning by York students. The  recipients are selected by the Senate Committee on Awards. Recipients of the awards have their names engraved on the President's University-Wide Teaching Award plaques in Vari Hall and are recognized at Convocation ceremonies.
