U of T Celebrates its ‘True Blue’ Faculty Members, Librarians & Staff

U of T ranks among the best universities globally because of outstanding employees whose efforts support and improve our tri-campus community. The University’s True Blue Award recognizes and celebrates some of our exemplary faculty members, librarians, and staff whose contributions make U of T an excellent place to work.

We are pleased to announce our most recent recipients of the True Blue Award. These individuals were nominated for a True Blue Award when their colleagues sent them a True Blue eCard on the True Blue Recognition Platform between December 2023 and February 2024. Join us in celebrating these individuals who went above and beyond in their commitment to the University.

True Blue eCards highlight the outstanding daily contributions of our faculty members, librarians, and staff. Expressing gratitude for our colleague’s work is integral to fostering a culture of inclusion and appreciation at the University of Toronto.
