About the awards

The G. Raymond Chang Outstanding Volunteer Awards celebrate the exemplary generosity and contribution of alumni and friends to Ryerson University. The awards are named in honour of G. Raymond Chang, the late chancellor emeritus of Ryerson University and Officer of the Order of Canada, for his deep belief in the importance of volunteering. The business leader and philanthropist participated in 95 convocations and awarded nearly 30,000 degrees and diplomas. It was one of his favourite things and expressed the way he embraced his role as "the students' chancellor".

At Ryerson, our volunteers are integral members of the Ryerson community and play a vital role in the quality of the Ryerson experience for students, faculty and staff, and alumni. From mentors to advisors, fundraisers, ambassadors, organizers, ticket sellers, greeters and guest speakers, and more — their work and service contributes to the spirit of community at Ryerson. Our volunteers help bolster the university’s reputation as a top destination for learning, innovation, entrepreneurism and so much more.

Outstanding volunteers will be recognized for their contribution to specific academic units, such as faculties or institutes, to non-academic units, or to the university at large.
