Nominate a leader

Just three questions

Nominations are based on the following three questions, to be answered in about 300 words or less.

Dedication: Tell us about the nominee's history of engagement with sustainability. Share some of the specific ways they have taken action for sustainability.

Impact: What has been the impact of their sustainability-related actions? Try to include examples and measured results of their benefit to campus sustainability. As appropriate, please connect their accomplishments to the goals and actions in the university's Sustainability Plan and other institutional guiding documents.

Leadership: How has the nominee positively impacted their community of peers (e.g. other students, co-workers, campus community)? Describe how their leadership qualities have shined though.


Nominations are evaluated by a small committee convened annually by the university's chief sustainability officer. The committee consists of faculty, staff and students. Learn more about the nomination process.

In order to recognize a diversity of initiatives and accomplishments at the University of Alberta, winners from previous years are not considered.

The Campus Sustainability Leadership Awards recognize contributions by students, staff, faculty and university organizations to campus sustainability.
