The Order of Wilfrid Laurier University honours worthy recipients who have a record of exemplary and distinguished service to the university.
We invite members of the university community to nominate worthy individuals for the award.
The award is available to any member of the university, those currently or formerly attached to the university, and to those representing the university in the community. Candidates nominated for membership in the order may include, but are not limited to, current or former faculty, staff, students, volunteers, and friends of the university. The award shall not be made posthumously or in absentia.
The award consists of a diploma suitably inscribed, a pin denoting membership in the order, and a citation to be read at the convocation ceremony at which the award is presented. The recipient may also be invited to address convocation.
Nomination deadlines are Nov. 15 for spring convocation and Feb. 15 for fall convocation. Nominations are reviewed by the Honorary Degree Committee and must include a completed nomination form, a letter of nomination signed by two nominators (or two representatives of a nominating group), and a full curriculum vitae and/or biographical sketch. All information submitted will be kept confidential. It is recommended that nominees not be advised of their nomination.
