The Gordon Cressy Student Leadership Awards recognize students for outstanding extra-curricular contributions to their college, faculty, school or department, or to the university as a whole. The awards were established in 1994 by the University of Toronto Alumni Association (UTAA) and the Division of University Advancement. The UTAA named the awards after Gordon Cressy, former vice-president of development and university relations, University of Toronto. Cressy showed commitment to higher education and leadership in fundraising and community service.
