POLITICAL SCIENCE PROF. MICHAEL WEBB AND LAW PROF. GLENN GALLINS—who both inspire students by creating opportunities to learn by doing—are the recipients of the Alumni Awards for Excellence in Teaching.
Webb, winner of the “Harry Hickman Award” (the category designated for regular faculty members), emphasizes experiential learning, particularly in his guidance of the Model United Nations Club.
Gallins receives the Gilian Sherwin Award (for instructors) for his long-standing leadership of law students who gain skills by representing clients of the Law Centre Clinical Legal Education Program in downtown Victoria.

Cross country and track star Robyn Meagher, MEd ’06, earned a silver medal at the 1994 Victoria Commonwealth Games in the 3,000 metres—a highlight of a career that included two appearances at the Olympics and two Canadian university championships during her Vikes career (1985-90).
