Ajay Heble      SETS: at a recent awards ceremony, the Student Senate Caucus awarded Professor Ajay Heble its award for Contributions to Teaching. His nominator states: "He has experimented with many really cool ways of engaging students actively in the learning process and is a testament to what a prof can do when [he is] passionate about teaching."

Ruediger Mueller     SOLAL: Prof Mueller recently received a Central Student Association (CSA) Teaching Excellence Award for his work with students. His citation states that: "his impressive work ethic inspires students to put forth their best effort."

Jacqueline Murray       History: Prof. Murray received an Honourable Mention at the CSA awards ceremony: "...her commitment to developing and offering unique and exceptional courses for students" was cited as particularly praiseworthy.

Dionne Brand      (SETS): Prof Brand, the poet laureate of Toronto, was recently  shortlisted for the Griffin Poetry Prize and also for the 2011 Pat Lowther Award for best book of poetry by a Canadian. This is in respect to her recent novel length poem entitled Ossuaries.

Professors Donna Andrew, Terry Crowley, and Doug McCalla (all of the History Dept) have been approved for the title of University Professor Emeritus/Emerita.  This has been done in recognition of their records in teaching, research and service to the University. This title is normally bestowed at the time of next Convocation (June 15th).

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
