Peter D. Curry Chancellor’s Award
Information
The Award
The Peter D. Curry Chancellor’s Award was established in April, 1983 by the Investors Group on the occasion
of the retirement of Peter D. Curry from the Board of the Investors Group. The award recognizes Dr. Curry’s
outstanding service to both the company and the community, particularly in the field of education. The award is
to be made annually to an individual who has made outstanding contributions to the development and/or
governance of the University. Staff members and members of the community are eligible for the award.
Process
The Peter D. Curry Chancellor’s Award Committee is composed of the Chancellor, past Chancellors residing in
Manitoba, the Chair of the Board of Governors, and the President. Nominations will be accepted from members
of the Board of Governors, Senate, staff, students, and members of the community. Nominations can also be
submitted by members of the Committee and past recipients of the award. The award will be presented at
Convocation by the Chancellor.
Recognition
Recipients of the Award will designate the annual revenue of the Award Fund to be allocated for use by a unit
(e.g. faculty, school, library), for support of a University program (e.g. scholarship, endowment fund), or for the
artistic and cultural enrichment of the University. An award certificate and medal will also be presented to the
recipient.

Citations
The citation is a statement of the significance of the candidate’s work as prepared by one of the nominators. It
is intended to state very briefly why a candidate should be elected, and is essentially a summary of the
nomination. The citation should establish that the candidate has achieved such distinction as described in the
relevant policy. Those preparing citations are asked to respect the limitation of length of 200 words. The citation
should concentrate on the candidate’s contributions to the development and/or governance of the University.
The citation 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 work for voting purposes. When a candidate
is selected by the Peter D. Curry Chancellor’s Award Committee, the citation is the only document that will be
circulated to assist in the voting. If a nominee is approved, the citation may be used to inform and assist in the
preparation of an official citation for all related publications. The citation is therefore an important document
which should be carefully written and should contain as much useful information as possible.
