Decades of Distinguished Service at Queen's

In this extended episode of Campus Beat (broadcasting October 25th 2021 on cfrc 101.9 fm/, we chat with four Queen’s University Distinguished Service Award recipients from 2020 and 2021.

Inaugurated by the University Council Executive Committee in 1974, the Distinguished Service Award recognizes individuals who have made the university a better place through their exemplary service and extraordinary contributions. The University Council was established by statute in 1874. It is one of the three governing bodies of the Queen’s University and all elective members are elected by and from Queen’s alumni. The University Council serves as both an advisory and an ambassadorial body to the university as a whole and is responsible for the election of the Chancellor.
