The President’s Special Service Excellence Award

In acknowledgement of the extraordinary efforts of our non-instructional employees as VIU faced the Global Pandemic, to reimagine and deploy, both on campus and off, within tight timelines, distressing circumstances, and a sea of unknowns, the entirety of operations and supports of such critical importance to our learners and fellow colleagues at Vancouver Island University, we wish to award you the President’s Special Award for Service Excellence.
