Individuals or units/groups/committees may be nominated for an award. The OHREA Awards Committee is looking for demonstrated evidence and specific examples of contributions at the University of Windsor. The criteria used for the selection process will include, but are not limited to:

All members of the University community are eligible to be nominated for the awards. This includes students, faculty, staff, retirees, alumni and volunteers. Persons outside of the University (who contribute to the advancement of human rights, social justice, diversity, employment equity and accessibility at the University) may also be nominated.
How to Nominate an Individual or Group:
Nominations may only come from staff, faculty, students, alumni and retirees of the University.
