“We are proud to recognize, reward and celebrate the engaged and excellent individuals who have been selected as Fellows, and look forward to their contributions to advancing and promoting the value, status and recognition of teaching and learning at University of Guelph,” said Dr. Gwen Chapman, provost and vice-president (academic).
