On June 5, 2018 over 550 Faculty of Education students proudly walked across the convocation stage under the big white tent on lower campus.
Daniel Jacob (BSc, Kinesiology, 2005), a former McGill University all-star defenceman and assistant coach, has been appointed to the coaching staff of the Laval Rocket, the American Hockey League affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens.
SPOT Professor and Education alumna Dr. Aliki Thomas (PhD (Learning Sciences) 2011) has been selected as the 2018 winner of the McGill Faculty of Medicine Maude Abbot Prize. The award recognizes an outstanding female faculty member who excels in education, research, or administration with a focus on the early career stage.
While Spring 2018 Convocation will be a week-long celebration of McGill’s graduating students it will also see honorary degrees conferred upon 14 inspiring individuals. Giants in their respective fields, this year’s Hon Docs have blazed trails in everything from healthcare and human rights to Photonics and philanthropy.
Although some on this list have never stood in front of a classroom, all are teachers. Their respective lives and careers stand as lessons in commitment, ingenuity, public service and the ability to see possibilities where others see obstacles.
