Each year, the Cressy Awards are presented to graduating students who have made outstanding extracurricular contributions to their college, faculty or school, or to the university as a whole. This year’s U of T Engineering winners joined 191 other students from across the University of Toronto who were honoured for their leadership and commitment to improving the world around them over the course of their degrees.

The awards are named after former U of T Vice-President of Development and University Relations, Gordon Cressy, for his commitment to higher education, and leadership in fundraising and community service. Since their inception, over 3,000 students have received the award.
