Art Seto, a professor with Ryerson University’s Graphic Communications Management (GCM) program, has been awarded the Dean’s Award for 2012. This marks the first time that a GCM faculty member has received the award.

He was chosen from amongst approximately 100 instructors employed within Ryerson’s Faculty of Communication & Design, which includes GCM – Canada’s only 4-year degree-level program dedicated to graphic arts studies.

Seto was chosen for his transformation of the two semesters of bindery courses, which are now regarded as some of the most-popular courses with GCM students. He was also recognized for his teaching of the estimating course.

"Reading your citation, I noted your passion for your field, your student-centred approach to the curriculum, and a continual striving to expand the professional capabilities of your student, while instilling in them a sense of creativity and, wonderfully, a respect for books,” wrote Sheldon Levy, Ryerson’s President, in a letter of congratulations addressed to Seto. “When I read that you have turned a fearful estimating course into one that is building careers, it truly completed the picture of a great teacher.”
