Lincoln Alexander isnít the easiest act to follow, but those who demonstrate the qualities of the longtime U of G chancellor just might end up with an award that bears his name. The Universityís Centre for Studies in Leadership (CSL) is seeking nominations for the Lincoln Alexander Outstanding Leader Award, to be presented at the annual U of G leadership banquet next June.
Alexander, U of Gís chancellor since 1991, received the inaugural award this past summer at a dinner hosted by the College of Management and Economics and the CSL, where it was announced that the award would be named in his honour.
Nominees must show a commitment to the CSLís core values of advocacy, collaboration, transformational leadership, ethical governance and service in their actions/body of work, all qualities Alexander has demonstrated over the course of his distinguished career in public life.
A selection committee will consider any citizens of the world for this honour. Ideally, they should be recognized internationally for their achievements in the core value areas, either for one significant event or over an extended period. Though not a prerequisite, a link to Canada is highly valued.
The CSL was established in 2003 to undertake and promote research on leadership issues, develop new educational programs and participate in community outreach and promotional activities.
Nominations should be submitted by Dec. 31 to: Centre for Studies in Leadership, Room 116, Macdonald Institute Building. For more information, visit the CSL web site or send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
