President Anne Sado has been honoured by a national organization for her leadership on the expansion and evolution of George Brown College and for championing work-integrated learning for students.
Sado received the Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICAN) Presidents' Leadership Network Distinguished Service Award on May 2 at a ceremony in Ottawa.
“Anne Sado is a well-respected leader within the college and institute community and someone whose influence is felt well beyond the walls of George Brown College, not only in Canada, but internationally as well”, said CICAN President and CEO, Denise Amyot. “She has always been a proud champion of Canada’s colleges and institutes and a role model for many leaders, making a difference wherever she goes. We are thrilled to recognize her today!”
Sado took the helm at George Brown in 2004 and continues to advance hands-on and real-world learning for our students. In 2016/17, 95 per cent of our qualifying programs offered field education. She plans to make that 100 per cent by 2020.
Here are some highlights from Sado's 13 years of leadership so far:
CICAN also named George Brown a gold recipient of the 2017 Internationalization Excellence Award.
