The Warren Gill Award for Community Impact
Recognizing and celebrating lifetime achievement in community engagement.
The Warren Gill Award is presented annually to an SFU staff or faculty member who has dedicated a lifetime of work to exemplary community-engaged teaching, research and creative activity, and who has built significant partnerships between the University and the communities served by SFU.
