Lillian Iannone: Honourary Social Worker


Published: 14Feb2020

Lillian was recently recognized for her dedication and exceptional work as the recipient of the Arts Award of Excellence for Administrative and Support Staff.  Lillian Iannone has been a member of the McGill community and School of Social Work for 45 years. At the age of 17, straight out of high school, Lillian interviewed for a position at the School and has been there ever since. She is currently the Administrative & Student Affairs Coordinator. 

Aside from the number of administrative tasks she takes on, Lillian is most recognized for her compassion for students. As one of her colleagues writes, “There is no problem too complex for her to unravel, no hurdle she won’t climb (or breakthrough) when a student’s welfare or future prospects are at stake. Her patience for sitting with faculty Program Directors and students alike in the service of problem-solving is seemingly endless. And her heart is as big as her knowledge base is deep.”
