The Dr. and Mrs. Ralph Campbell Award

(for particularly meritorious service in outreach activities)


To mark the end of the term of Dr. Ralph Campbell as president of the University of Manitoba, his colleagues and friends established a trust fund to support the Dr. and Mrs. Ralph Campbell Outreach Award for meritorious service in outreach activities. The award is referred to as The Campbell Award.


The Campbell Award shall normally be presented each Fall to a staff member of the University of Manitoba.  The Value of the award will be determined from time to time by the Board of Governors.  In each of the past years, the award has been $1,000.  If, in the judgment of the committee of selection there are two candidates of equal merit, the committee may recommend that the Campbell Award be divided between the two candidates.

Nominations for the Campbell Award will be accepted from staff members of the University, alumni and members of the community.

No recipient of a Campbell Award is eligible to receive it a second time until the tenth year after the first receipt of the award.

Selection Committee

The Presidential Advisory Committee on University Outreach will continue to act as the selection committee for the Campbell Award and to advise the president of the most appropriate recipients for this year. The committee will bear in mind the diversity of faculties, schools and administrative units within the University and will attempt to give due recognition to all areas over a period of time.


Nomination forms can be found here and submitted to: Dr. Diane Hiebert-Murphy, Vice-Provost (Academic Affairs), Chair of the Selection Committee, 208 Administration Building, by Monday, February 22, 2021. The nomination forms must be accompanied by three letters of support, including at least one letter from outside the University.


Deadline for receipt of nomination forms is Monday, February 22, 2021.
