Save the date for Dawson’s Recognition of Service
It’s finally time to celebrate! We will have a special celebration the evening of Thursday, June 16 to recognize all those who have retired and all those who have arrived at the major milestone of 25 years of service to Dawson since July 1, 2019.
The evening will include a cocktail hour and a dinner. Dawson’s traditional Recognition of Service aims to treat our long-serving and dedicated employees to a very special night.

Teaching Excellence Awards are back!
In past years, nominations were held in both Fall and Winter semesters, but this year they will be held all at once. From March 21 through April 3, students and faculty may nominate a teacher who best embodies teaching excellence through their outstanding teaching performance in the classroom, lab, and/or field work.
Dawson College is proud of its teachers and the Director General wants to thank them by allowing students and faculty to recognize teachers by giving them the opportunity to win an award that highlights their devoted work.
Five teachers will be selected: two in pre-university programs, one in a career program, one in general education, and one in a continuing education program (including AEC). Results will be announced in September of the following academic year during Ped Day.
More information on the criteria and procedures can be found through the My Dawson Portal (Omnivox) in the My Dawson Life menu under Teaching Excellence Award. Please read through them carefully before you nominate a teacher. Happy voting!
