Awards and recognition

At Ontario Tech University we recognize that without the contributions and dedication of faculty and staff, we would not be the institution we are today. We have developed award and recognition programs to acknowledge those people who have made an outstanding impact on the university, and to celebrate their accomplishments.

The Peers Recognizing Achievements in Standout Employees (PRAISE) program provides the opportunity to informally recognize small victories and day-to-day accomplishments in real time. Visit the PRAISE program page to recognize a colleague.

The annual staff Awards of Excellence were developed in 2018-2019 by a committee with representation from across the university to recognize behaviours within the organization that positively impact the academic mission, our students and our community. Individual and/or team accomplishments can be nominated for an award based on pre-defined criteria. To learn more, visit the criteria and process page.

The 10-year Service Awards program honours active, full-time continuing staff and faculty members who have completed 10 years of service at the university. In celebration of this dedicated service, loyalty and achievement, all staff and faculty members observing this milestone anniversary will receive a commemorative gift. This gift will be presented at an annual appreciation event in June. To learn more, visit the 10-Year Service Awards page.

If you have any questions about any of our awards and recognition programs, please contact Jennifer Topping, Organizational Development Consultant, at ext. 2347.
