St. Edmund Campion Medal

The St. Edmund Campion Medal is awarded to individuals whose life and activities have exemplified in an outstanding way the service of faith and promotion of justice—ideals championed by St. Edmund Campion and embedded in the Jesuit philosophy of education at Campion College.

The award may be presented to anyone who exemplifies the ideals of Jesuit education in their life work and actions. The recipient need not be an alumnus/a of the College. Persons currently employed by or working for Campion may also be considered for the award. The medal is not awarded posthumously. The selection committee will consider the following attributes when deciding on a St. Edmund Campion Medal recipient:

  • The individual demonstrates the key characteristics of a Jesuit education—striving for “the more” (magis), having a deep respect for individuals (cura personalis), exemplifying leadership in service, and promoting justice—in their professional and personal lives.
  • An individual who has distinguished him/herself in his/her professional career.
  • An individual whose reputation, achievements and contributions will bring honour and prestige to Campion College, and be an inspiration to Campion graduates.
