The faculty held its annual Celebration of Success at Vanier Hall, where about 100 students, faculty, staff and post-doctoral fellows were recognized for all of their accomplishments throughout the year.

Dean Marlys Koschinsky said the event provides her faculty with an opportunity to acknowledge all of the tremendous effort put forth on a regular basis by people who are continually striving to be the best.
