About the Prize

The Ludwik and Estelle (Stella) Jus Memorial Human Rights Prize was established in 1995 in memory of two Polish educators who risked their lives during the Holocaust to save others.

The award is presented to a faculty, staff or student member of the University who has made a positive and lasting contribution in one or more of these areas:

  • Education and action against discrimination;
  • Supporting the University’s mission to realize an exemplary degree of equity and diversity; and,
  • Extending our knowledge as a consequence of our diversity.

The award recipient will receive a prize of up to $1,500 and will be honoured at the Awards of Excellence ceremony held in the spring of 2017.
