University of Toronto Student Leadership Awards

The University of Toronto Student Leadership Award continues U of T’s long-standing tradition of recognizing outstanding student leadership, service, and commitment to the university. This tradition began with the Gordon Cressy Student Leadership Award, which was established in 1994 by the UTAA in honour of Mr. Gordon Cressy, former Vice-President, Development and University Relations. In naming the award in his honour, the University of Toronto Alumni Association (UTAA) recognized his leadership and service across various spheres, as well as his term at the university. During the award’s 25-year history, it celebrated the exemplary contributions of more than 4,000 students whose commitment and service had a lasting impact on their peers and the university.

The University of Toronto Student Leadership Award (UTSLA) continues the Cressy Award legacy. Recipients of the UTSLA will join the distinguished community of past Cressy Award recipients in being honoured for their exemplary leadership and service to U of T.

Applications for the UTSLA’s open in the fall annually, application information will be posted here when available. You can learn more about the awards here.
