From the university to the world: three Arts & Science scholars win President’s Impact Awards
February 21, 2019
U of T researchers are producing work that reaches far outside the walls of the university, making waves in areas ranging from public policy to popular culture to economy, health, climate and more.
It’s precisely for this reason that the President’s Impact Awards were created in 2017: to honour “individuals who take their research out of the university and have an impact on society,” said Vivek Goel, vice-president of research and innovation at U of T.
Of this year’s five recipients, three are from the Faculty of Arts & Science.
