Administrators within an Ontario college who have demonstrated distinguished administrative performance thereby exhibiting the following criteria:
- Outstanding leadership that promotes collegiality and team work
- Consistent professionalism that invites respect and credibility amongst colleagues
- Significant outcomes demonstrating overall effectiveness
This award differs from the Doug Light Career Achievement Award in scope. They are influencers and leaders who are highly respected by their colleagues and have shown strong leadership in their college or region. These administrators are contributing at a high level, but don’t have a lifetime of work behind them yet, nor have they necessarily influenced beyond their local sphere.
