Robin H. Farquhar Award for Excellence in Contributing to Self-Governance

Awards and Distinctions


This award was established in 1989 by the University Board of Regents in honour of Dr. Robin H. Farquhar, the third President of The University of Winnipeg. The purpose of the award is to recognize a University faculty or staff member who contributes significantly to the self-governance function of the University. Dr. Farquhar valued the efforts of those who volunteer their time to serve on committees, boards, and task forces, thus maintaining the traditional and important autonomous nature of a university. Nominations for this award are requested from faculty and staff and the recipient is chosen by a committee representing constituencies of the University.
