Congratulations to Dr. Dawson, who has received The John Bell Award, for outstanding contributions to education at the University of Guelph.

Established in 1988, the John Bell Award recognizes faculty members who have demonstrated outstanding educational leadership while at the University of Guelph.  The award is made in honour of Professor John M. Bell, a distinguished and innovative teacher of classics with a passion for improving student learning and the development of educational goals.  Professor Bell served the University with distinction from 1972 to 1987 and served as Chair of the School of Languages and Literatures (1980-87), and Chair of the Board of Undergraduate Studies (1985-87). Professor Bell received national recognition in 1986 as one of 10 inaugural 3M Fellows, honored for their contributions to teaching and learning.

The Senate Honours and Awards Committee (“the Committee”) shall receive suggestions for and present to Senate nominations for the John Bell Award.  Through its recommendations of outstanding leaders in university education, the Committee will endeavor to reflect the values of the University of Guelph community, as articulated in the University’s mission and strategic documents.
