Western’s Strategic Plan states, "above all other resources, Western’s people are the key to its success and must be the central focus of any strategic plan".
This critical focus on people is re-iterated in the Faculty of Health Sciences’ Four-Year Strategic Plan. Staff support the academic mission allowing faculty and students to devote much of their time and energy towards the search for truth and the application of knowledge, Veritas et Utilitas, Western’s objectives since 1878. The University recognizes the crucial role of staff and indeed one of the Commitments outlined in the Making Choices document is to:
"Develop an effective and visible means of recognition of exceptional performance by staff"
In renewing its commitment to staff, Western’s strategic plan states, "As the complexity of the work environment increases, the University’s success becomes increasingly dependent upon:
Western’s staff are central to the University’s ability to create this framework for success."
All full-time regular staff who have been employed for at least three full years in the Faculty of Health Sciences are eligible for consideration for this award.
