The Dean's Award for Excellence took place on Thursday, November 30, as members of the Faculty of Arts and Science gathered at the Loyola Chapel to commend the recipients of the annual celebration of academic excellence.
“As we know, the world is in a difficult place right now, on so many levels,” said Dean Pascale Sicotte in her opening remarks. “Ceremonies like this one provide us with an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate excellence, strengthening the bonds that unite our community.”
And opportunities to celebrate innovative academic and research endeavors were numerous this year.
“It was a joy to read so many outstanding letters of recommendation from colleagues and students,” shares Jill Didur, Associate Dean Faculty Affairs and Inclusion. “This is the highest number of nominations, for all award categories, that the selection committee has received over the past five years!"
