2018 Murray Elliot Service Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Teacher Education Program

This award honours full-time and sessional faculty, staff and other persons associated with the Faculty of Education who have made an outstanding contribution to the Teacher Education Program at UBC.

The recipient will receive a plaque along with a Pendleton blanket. In addition, the recipient’s name will be displayed in the Faculty alongside other recipients of the award.


The nomination package should include 3 letters of nomination that address the following criteria:

  • The recipient will have shown exceptional dedication, leadership skills, and commitment to the ongoing improvement of the UBC Teacher Education Program over an extended period of time.
  • A detailed overview of the nominee’s accomplishments and/or contribution to the Teacher Education Program.
