Each year, the Institute for Management & Innovation honours its most innovative and collaborative IMI teams and team members. The IMI Awards provide us with a chance to honour our hardworking, innovative, and committed faculty & staff. We are happy to announce that for 2021, we have added awards for our IMI graduate students.

Award nominations are reviewed by a panel that includes staff, faculty and student members from across UTM.

In August 2020, the winners were announced via Zoom at our fifth annual IMI Faculty & Staff Awards Reception.
