Let's celebrate our accomplishments! Send us your career milestones, accolades, awards and educational achievements. If you know of a bashful colleague who has something to celebrate, send it to us at

We want to begin by acknowledging all 32 recipients of the President's and Provost's Awards for Excellence, which took place virtually on Friday, December 4. We are so proud of these recipients - they help VIU meet its potential, inspire us to do our best each day, help us when we need support and go above and beyond in so many ways. The five awards categories are: 

  • The President's Awards for Community Engagement
  • The President's Awards for Access and Inclusion
  • The President's Awards for Service Excellence
  • The Provost's Awards for Excellence in Teaching Design and Practice
  • The Provost's Awards for Scholarship, Research and Creative Activity 

Watch the recording to see who received the honours. Congratulations again to all.
