Associate Professor, Teaching Stream, Diane Horton has been named one of Ontario’s most outstanding university teachers by the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations (OCUFA).
The OCUFA Teaching Award recognize outstanding contributions to teaching and learning at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
