History: Professor Jacqueline Murray Named Woman of Distinction
Posted on Monday, May 5th, 2014
This past Thursday night our own Dr. Jacqueline Murray was named a Woman of Distinction. She received the education and training award. As a history professor and director of the first-year seminar program on campus, the award recognizes her creativity and innovation in teaching, and for being a mentor and role model for students.
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.
