Distinguished Service Award
Information
Purpose
Distinguished Service Awards are awarded to individuals, groups, and organizations whose contributions
improve the social or cultural well-being of the people of Manitoba. The Award is intended to recognize those
whose service efforts build a better province for us all. The focus of the Award is the recognition of distinguished
community service to the University, the City of Winnipeg, and the Province of Manitoba, as opposed to individual
achievements.
Eligibility
All residents of Manitoba, who are not current employees of the University of Manitoba, are eligible for nomination
for the Distinguished Service Award.
Normally, no more than two Distinguished Service Awards shall be awarded in one academic year.
Process
The Distinguished Service Award Committee meets annually to review nominations.
Nominations approved by the Committee are recommended to the Board of Governors.
Elections for Distinguished Service Awards are held at a meeting of the Board of Governors. Voting is by secret
ballot, and election results are confidential.
A reserve list of approved candidates for the Award is maintained by the Board of Governors.
Documents
The documents prepared and submitted by the nominator are to indicate the significance of the candidate’s
accomplishments, to state very briefly why a candidate should be elected, and to establish that the candidate
has achieved such distinction as described in the Distinguished Service Award Policy.
Those preparing the biographical summary are asked to respect the limitation of length of 150 words.
The documents should be as readable as possible while sufficiently detailed in content to allow those considering
the nominations to make a confident assessment of the candidate’s achievements for voting purposes. When a
candidate is selected by the Distinguished Service Award Committee, these documents may be the only
materials that will be circulated to the Board of Governors to help them in their voting. If a nominee is approved,
the information contained in the documents may be used to inform and assist in the preparation of an official
citation for all related publications.
