OCAD University BLG Faculty Equity Award Nomination Guidelines 2019

The BLG Faculty Equity Award is sponsored by Borden, Ladner & Gervais Law Firm. The award aims to recognize distinctive and outstanding work in teaching and pedagogy, research, creative work and/or service in advancing OCAD U’s mandate in fostering an inclusive, equitable and diverse learning environment inside or outside the classroom.

Candidates can be Tenure, Tenure Track, Continuing, or Teaching-Intensive Stream.

The recipient will receive a letter of congratulations from Dr. Sara Diamond,  $1000.00 via direct deposit into their payroll and their name will be included on the list of winners on the university’s website.
