The 2019-2020 academic year sure didn’t wrap-up like usual. Among the events that didn’t happen because the pandemic kept us apart was the University’s spring academic awards celebration.

Each spring, we take a moment to celebrate academic excellence across all MSVU programs. Though we couldn’t get together to do that this year, we wanted to put a well-deserved spotlight on our 2019-2020 Academic Award Recipients.

“From stand-out research and writing to overall academic performance, these students are a reminder that our future is bright,” said Julie McMullin, PhD, Vice President Academic and Provost at MSVU. “My heartiest congratulations to this spring’s academic award winners on a year of wonderful achievements. You’re an inspiration to us all.”
