2015 Distinguished Alumni Award Recipients

Every day, through their actions and influence, U of M alumni make a positive impact on the world around them

The recipients of the 2015 annual University of Manitoba Distinguished Alumni Awards have been selected and the honorees encompass a wide range of achievement, success and community service.

The Distinguished Alumni Awards recognize graduates who have achieved outstanding accomplishments in their professional and personal lives, and who have been an inspiration to other alumni, current students and the community, both close to home and around the globe.

“Graduates of the University of Manitoba have been instrumental in virtually every advancement in Manitoba,” says David Barnard, President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Manitoba. “They are trailblazers, visionaries and challengers who create opportunities for others, promote mentorship, teamwork and respect, and create a positive change in the world through their actions. They don’t just talk about improving our world; they do. It is important that we celebrate their success and achievement.”
