Group award

About the group award

For this award, you can nominate a group of Concordians who have worked together on a time-bound project on a volunteer basis and have had a demonstrated impact on a cause of interest beyond the academic community. 


  • The majority of group members must be current Concordia students, staff and/or faculty members.

  • This award is not intended to recognize entire organizations but rather groups of volunteers who go over and above in helping organizations achieve a goal by assuming leadership of a project, or who otherwise make an important contribution to a cause.

  • Volunteers are considered members of a group if they have worked jointly on a specific, time-bound project.

  • All group members must be volunteers. Volunteering is defined as working for a non-profit organization without compensation. Students cannot receive class credit. Staff and faculty volunteering must take place outside of work hours. 

  • Evidence of impact on cause/organization must be provided.

Selection Criteria

  • The group members’ initiative and leadership

  • The extent of the group members' volunteer engagement

  • The demonstrated impact of the project on the external community. The external community is defined as extending outside the University. While the group's work may have taken place on or off campus, nominators must make a clear demonstration of how its members supported a cause that reaches beyond the interests of the group members, their peers, and the academic community.

Nominate a group

To submit a nomination, send the following to by 5 p.m. on Monday February 13, 2023.

  • The names, contact information, and status of each group member (student, staff, faculty, alumni, or member of the community at large)

  • Supporting documentation such as project materials, reports, and letter(s) of support
