Memorial University recognized the efforts of its best teachers, researchers and staff members at a special ceremony held Oct. 24 at the St. John’s Arts and Culture Centre. Seven Memorial faculty members were honoured at the reception – five for outstanding research, and two for distinguished teaching. As well, the exceptional contribution of members of the administrative and support staff of Memorial University and its agencies was recognized with the President’s Award for Exemplary Service. Here are those recognized.


President's Award for Outstanding Research
The President’s Award for Outstanding Research recognizes researchers who have made outstanding contributions to their scholarly disciplines. Each award includes a $5,000 research grant.

University Research Professor
University Research Professors have acquired a designation above the rank of professor. The title is the most prestigious award the university gives for research, and goes to faculty who have demonstrated a consistently high level of scholarship and whose research is of truly international stature. The designation carries with it a $4,000 research grant each year for five years and a reduced teaching schedule.

Distinguished Teaching Awards
President’s Awards for Distinguished Teaching recognize the teaching excellence in the university community. Each winner of the teaching award receives a $5,000 grant contributed by the Memorial University Alumni Association.
