Honouring our Alumni of Influence

The Alumni of Influence awards are a public way for the College of Arts & Science to recognize and celebrate our very distinguished alumni. The awards signal to today's students that they are part of a vibrant and accomplished college.

The 7th Annual Dean's Gala and Award Ceremony for the 2016 Alumni of Influence will be held on Friday, March 18, 2016 at TCU Place in Saskatoon. Eleven new recipients will be recognized at that time.
