David Stewart Professional Development Award

The David Stewart Professional Development Award assists in the career development of a deserving employee from the non-bargaining group by financially supporting professional development opportunities.

The award is established in honour of David Stewart, who retired in 2014 from his position as Vice-president, Administration after 36 years of service in management and executive positions with the University.  His tireless and selfless effort and dedication to realizing the goals of the University are the basis for this award, which recognizes individuals who have made, or who have potential to make, similar contributions to the life of the University.
