Nipissing set to celebrate outstanding student leaders

Nipissing University is getting set to celebrate the outstanding contributions of 25 student leaders during its annual Dave Marshall Leadership Awards ceremony. This year, the ceremony will take place live on Zoom on March 17 at 1:30 p.m. All are welcome to attend the virtual ceremony here.

The Dave Marshall Leadership Award recognizes full-time students who have made an extra-curricular contribution to their academic program, to the campus, or to the greater community. Each recipient has demonstrated leadership, initiative and an ability to motivate others towards the betterment of Nipissing University. The award is a prestigious, non-monetary award in recognition of their dedication and leadership Dr. Dave Marshall demonstrated during his 18 consecutive years of service as the Dean of Education and President and Vice-Chancellor of Nipissing University.

Marshall’s tenure at Nipissing University reflects his commitment to higher education, his vision for the future and his leadership in external community service. These are the qualities that are embodied in the students recognized with this award.
