True Blue Award

For more details about this award, email

True Blue Informal Recognitions highlight the practices of exemplary faculty and staff who make invaluable contributions to the University every day. The University of Toronto ranks as Canada’s leading institution of learning and is one of the world’s top research-intensive universities because of the vital work of employees across our three campuses.

It’s important to recognize those contributions – not just through formal recognition programs, but as a part of our day-to-day practice. When our efforts are appreciated and valued, we are more dedicated to success and gain a greater understanding of how our work contributes to the University’s mission. Expressing gratitude for the work of our colleagues is an important part of fostering a culture of appreciation and makes the University of Toronto an excellent place to work.

We invite members of the University Community to identify those every-day moments when a colleague’s efforts have been outstanding. The True Blue Recognition Platform makes it easy to let them know in real time!
