Sid Frankel honoured for anti-poverty awareness and reduction

Sid Frankel, a long-serving professor in the Faculty of Social Work, is the recipient of the 2022 Dr. and Mrs. Ralph Campbell Outreach Award.

The Campbell Outreach Award is given to University of Manitoba faculty who have displayed a strong commitment to outreach and the betterment of their local and extended communities through their academic positions.
