Dr. Susannah Ferreira has just been announced winner of UGFA Distinguished Professor Award for Innovation in Teaching in the College of Arts. Dr. Ferreira is especially known for her work with our students in specialized archival courses employing medieval manuscripts in the Library's Special Collections.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
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.
