Frank Reid Prize

The Frank Reid Prize is presented at convocation and is awarded to two students each year: to the top graduating student from the 2-year MIRHR degree program in June and to the top graduating student from the 12-month MIRHR degree program in November.  

The Prize was established as a tribute to Frank Reid’s service as Director of the Centre for Industrial Relations and Human Resources from 1997 through 2009, his deep commitment to Master’s students and his desire to achieve excellence in the MIRHR Program.  During his tenure, a number of significant changes place, including the addition of Human Resources to the name of the Centre,  Master of Industrial Relations (MIR) and PhD degrees.  The study of employment issues in both union and non-union environments, that has always been a hallmark of the Centre, would now be formally recognized.
