Recognition and Achievement Awards
Each year, Langara honours employees for their achievements and contributions to the College community under four categories of excellence (Scholarly category added for 2017-2018!):
- Leadership Excellence: honours an employee who has made an outstanding contribution in a learning leadership role to the internal and/or external College community.
- Scholarly Excellence: honours an employee who has made an important contribution to research and scholarly activity through their work at the College.
- Service Excellence: honours a non-teaching employee who, as a partner in the learning process, has made an exceptional contribution to the internal and/or external College community.
- Teaching Excellence: honours an employee who has exhibited consistent commitment to student success and teaching, and has had a significant impact on the academic and personal growth of students.
Employees may choose to nominate their colleagues or nominate themselves following the Recognition and Achievement Awards Procedures and Nomination Criteria. Awards are announced at our annual Employee Recognition Event. Recipients will receive $2,000 towards professional and/or leadership development, in addition to public acknowledgement and a traditional plaque.
