A hearty congratulations to David Palmer, Vice-President of Advancement for the University of Toronto, who has received the 2016 Outstanding Achievement Award from the Canadian Council for the Advancement of Education. A terrific video with testimonials from David’s colleagues across Canada was produced for last week’s event.
In selecting David for this singular honor, the Council recognizes an outstanding leader, who demonstrates the power of integrity, collaboration, and mentorship. His work guiding the University of Toronto’s $2 billion Boundless campaign – now exceeding $1.9 billion and counting – is a model for the broad engagement of alumni and supporters to forevermore advance education, scholarship, and scientific inquiry.
All of us here at GG+A have been proud to work closely with David Palmer on many different projects in Higher Education over the years, and feel keenly how deserved and timely this recognition is. Best wishes on this well-deserved honor!
