This award is the highest honour bestowed by the Queen's University Alumni Association.
Presented annually to an alumna/us who has demonstrated the high ideals imparted by a Queen’s University education through significant lifetime contributions to one or more of the following: the arts or sciences; public service; leadership in business, industry or a profession; community, charitable or volunteer work.
Drs. Alfred and Isabel Bader are the recipients of our 2013 Alumni Achievement Award. This award is the highest honour bestowed by the Queen's University Alumni Association. Alfred and Isabel Bader are being honoured for their significant contributions in the arts, philanthropy, and education at Queen’s. Together, they have transformed the learning experience at Queen’s and the very fabric of the Queen’s campus.
For 66 years, Alfred has committed himself to investing in education. Given the opportunity for education and self-improvement at his alma mater, Queen’s, his love of learning has inspired him to open the doors of education for others. Isabel Bader is a quiet, yet powerful champion of the arts and arts education in Canada: she inspires and enables students to become performers, scholars, and artists. She has opened up the world of music, art, dance, theatre, and costume to thousands of Canadians.
Together, they strive to make art and education available to the greater community, through their donations of works of art to the Agnes Etherington Art Centre as well as their support of a new performing arts centre for Queen’s and Kingston. They have also helped to make Queen’s an international university, with the creation of the Bader International Study Centre in Sussex, UK.Drs.
