Amy Perreault receives 2021 President’s Service Award for Excellence

 

We are excited to announce that Amy Perreault, Senior Strategist, Indigenous Initiatives at the Centre for Teaching, Learning, and Technology and First Nations Curriculum Concentration (FNCC) Coordinator at the UBC iSchool, is one of the recipients of the 2021 President’s Service Award for Excellence.

Amy Perreault (Bae) innovates to bring Indigenous content into curriculum in a respectful and meaningful way. Her commitment to relationship building, community engagement, and amplifying Indigenous voices has advanced Indigenous strategic priorities across the university. Her approach to Indigenous initiatives is exemplary and models what is possible in building generative relationships. Amy leads with a genuine dedication to learn from and about Musqueam.

Amy created the Classroom Climate workshop, a pedagogical series grounded in research-based principles that encourages supportive learning environments for socially contentious topics. Through this series, Amy has reached UBC’s teaching and learning community, many of whom have become partners and collaborators on related initiatives, and more importantly, created opportunities to center Indigenous expertise and resources. This substantive engagement with Musqueam is a direct result of Amy’s approach to relationship building with Musqueam elders and community members. Amy has co-published and presented on this work, garnering further professional and academic recognition.

The School is immensely grateful for all her contributions and guidance as the FNCC Coordinator. Our warmest congratulations to Amy on receiving this well-deserved recognition!

 

 

About the President’s Service Awards for Excellence

The President’s Service Award for Excellence is the top award presented to UBC staff in recognition of excellence in personal achievements and contributions to UBC and to the vision and goals of the University. These awards are presented each year to up to five outstanding staff members. The PSAE acknowledges staff who have made outstanding contributions to UBC, and who excel in their personal achievements.

The PSAE were created in 1991 and they recognize staff members who demonstrate outstanding achievement and excellence within the UBC community. With the growth of the university over the years, including the addition of the Okanagan campus, the UBC Vancouver President’s Staff Awards and the UBC Okanagan Staff Awards of Excellence were created to celebrate a wider range of accomplishments.
