UWindsor Together: Student Mental Health and Remote Learning Services

Book Awards

At the very core of every university is the concept of excellence. Students who enter university are constantly encouraged to excel in all of their undertakings. Most strive for academic excellence. A few, through careful time management and dedication, also engage and perform well in a variety of co-curricular activities that range from student government, athletics and volunteer work to name a few. These are the students who truly maximize their educational experience. The Faculty of Human Kinetics embraces the concept of pursuing academic and co-curricular excellence. The preparation of a well-rounded, balanced individual is central to the Faculty’s mission.

History of the Book Awards

The Faculty of Human Kinetics Book Award was approved by the Faculty of Human Kinetics Council in 1982. The purpose of the award is to generate a higher profile for the Faculty of Human Kinetics in the City and County schools. It was also meant to reinforce the image of “Human Kinetics” by giving an award to the outstanding scholar interested and involved in sports activities (not necessarily as a player).
Criteria:

  • Graduating Student
  • Outstanding Scholar
  • Participation in Sport Activities (not necessarily as a player)
  • Demonstrated Leadership, Administrative and/or Organizational Ability in School Activities
