The Principal's Prize for Excellence in Teaching
The Principal's Prize for Excellence in Teaching, was established to recognize educators who have distinguished themselves both in their teaching abilities and in their ability to motivate their students. It is traditionally awarded at Fall Convocation to one faculty lecturer, one assistant professor, one associate professor and one full professor. Since its creation, the Prize has been awarded to more than 50 McGill educators.
The Principal's Awards for Administrative and Support Staff
The Principal’s Awards for Administrative and Support Staff is a university-wide awards program that recognizes the outstanding contributions of administrative and support staff to McGill University. This annual program provides staff the opportunity to promote, acknowledge and commend the exceptional efforts of their peers.
The Principal's Prize for Outstanding Emerging Researchers
The Principal’s Prize for Outstanding Emerging Researchers was created in 2013 to encourage and celebrate McGill’s most outstanding early-career researchers, as well as to provide them with an advantage as they apply for external awards by adding a prestigious internal distinction to their list of accomplishments. The Office of the Vice-Principal (Research and International Relations) awards up to three of these prizes on an annual basis.
The Principal’s Prize for Public Engagement Through Media
Principal Suzanne Fortier created the Principal’s Prize for Public Engagement through Media to recognize outstanding achievement among those who share their knowledge with the public and the media. They play a vital role in supporting McGill University’s commitment to being of service to society and engaging with the broader community.
