Awards a way to say thank you

Did someone go the extra mile for you? Nominate them for one of our faculty awards!

April 12, 2017 — 

If saying ‘thank you’ goes a long way, imagine the impact you can make by nominating someone for an award.

Fun fact: the Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management offers a way to bestow recognition upon nearly everyone within our fold.

Behold, the Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management Awards.

There are four categories in which you can nominate someone you feel is deserving of special recognition. (You will read more about those categories in a moment).

Nominations can be made by literally anyone. Whether it’s a Recreation Services (Active Living Centre/Joe Doupe Recreation Centre) client recognizing a staff member, a Bison student-athlete wishing to acknowledge a faculty member, or a general office staff member wanting to express the importance a fellow staff member has on the office. There are no restrictions.

Those eligible for awards include: faculty, customer service representatives, Bison Sport coaches, Active Living coordinators, athletic therapists, support staff of the Dean’s Office, facility staff, and directors.

Back to the award categories. Read more about them below:
