Awards & Recognition

We think RDC has the best alumni of any college in the world and we like nothing more than to see them recognized and supported.

Each year, the RDC Alumni Association acknowledges a Distinguished Alum who has established themselves academically, professionally and/or in community service. The Alumni Legacy Award commemorates the community contributions of alumni who have passed away. We're proud to bestow these awards at our annual Community Awards banquet, along with the G. H. Dawe Memorial Award of Excellence, the Community Partner and RDC Builder awards each spring.

This year, we unveiled RDC Builders Hall (seen in photo above), a new opportunity to acknowledge these incredible contributors in the towering main hall of the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre. Following the announcement of our Honorary Degree recipient at Convocation, pennants bearing the names of our 2019 award winners will be revealed at the base of the banners that line RDC Builders Hall. We invite you to take a moment to appreciate these dedicated and impressive community contributors when you visit the Centre.

The RDC Alumni Association also supports six student scholarships.
