The Dennis Mock Student Leadership Award

The Dennis Mock Student Leadership Awards recognize graduating students who have made outstanding voluntary extracurricular contributions to their school or academic program department, their faculty, or to Ryerson University as a whole. The awards acknowledge and encourage student participation in university affairs.

In naming the awards after Dennis Mock, Ryerson recognizes his commitment to higher education. His leadership and dedication, demonstrated during his 28 years at the university, are qualities embodied in students chosen to receive this award - students committed to ‘making a difference’. This is a prestigious, non-monetary award.

The Dennis Mock Student Leadership Awards program recognizes graduating students who have made outstanding volunteer extracurricular contributions to their school, faculty or to the Ryerson community as a whole.
