As a recognized leader in the development and delivery of skills and technical training, Saskatchewan Polytechnic owes its success to the individual and collective efforts of its faculty and staff. Our employee award program recognizes excellence in service and innovation as a significant component to making our institution a key contributor to Saskatchewan's economic and social development. The Provost’s Faculty Awards for Excellence: Teaching will be presented every year at convocation.  Award winners may be invited to a board of directors’ function and attend the convocation lunch with the honorees.

Award winners are profiled in the president’s newsletter and are featured on our website.
