The Senate Awards Committee has announced upcoming deadlines for the five prizes it will award throughout the 2023-24 academic year, including the President’s Research Awards, the President’s University-Wide Teaching Awards, as well as Honorific Professorships.

Nominations for the five awards are driven by nominations from the York community, and previous nominators should note that this academic year’s deadlines have been scheduled earlier than previous years.

Separate calls for nomination for each individual award, including links to the criteria and nomination forms, will be issued throughout the year.

The awards and deadlines are:

Four awards are offered and are given to one of the following: full-time tenured faculty with 10 or more years of full-time teaching experience; full-time faculty (tenured/tenure-stream/CLA) with less than 10 years of teaching experience; contract and adjunct faculty; and teaching assistants.

Honorific Professorships
