The University of Ottawa established the annual Excellence in Teaching award to recognize educators of exceptional quality, driven by their passion to advance and share knowledge. These leaders in university education are outstanding in the classroom, in the laboratory and in the field.
This year, the committee selected Dr. Victor Leblanc, of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, for his outstanding work in the classroom and graduate student supervision. He was originally nominated by a petition from the students in his course MAT2322: Calculus III for Engineers, who summarized "Dr. Leblanc's enthusiasm and positive attitude is very contagious ... He truly inspires students to strive to success through hard work." This sentiment was echoed in countless letters of support from his colleagues and students.
Congratulations on a well-deserved award!
