The OCUFA Service Award was established to honour individuals who have done, or continue to do, exceptional work on behalf of the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations and its Members.

Up to six awards will be given each year and will be presented during OCUFA’s Annual General Meeting typically held in early May.

Nomination Criteria

The nomination should outline the outstanding nature of the nominee’s contribution to OCUFA, including years of accumulated service on the OCUFA Board, the OCUFA Executive, an OCUFA committee or an OCUFA ad hoc committee

To receive an OCUFA Service Award, the candidate must belong to an OCUFA member faculty association. Nominees can be either current or retired members of the eligible association.

An individual may only receive the OCUFA service award once.

Nomination process

Individuals may be nominated by a Member association, a member of a standing or ad hoc OCUFA committee, or a Director. Members serving on the OCUFA Executive cannot be nominated at the time they are on the Executive.

The OCUFA Executive will act as the selection committee for this award.
