It was a big week for McGill at the Canadian Council for the Advancement of Education’s national conference in Saskatoon, where the University won eight Prix d’Excellence awards, tied with the University of Alberta for most in the country. That total included a remarkable five gold medals, along with three silvers.
This followed news the previous day that University Advancement has won a Platinum Award from the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) for its Feed the Lead program in the category of Best Practices in Advancement Services. The Platinum categories recognize the best-of-the-best programs and practices in educational advancement among all CASE member institutions internationally. This marks the first time that McGill has received a Platinum award in any of the eight eligible categories.
