Faculty, staff and graduate students should submit nominations recognizing excellence among our undergraduate students in the categories of Academic Excellence and Outstanding Achievement. Nomination materials must be received no later than Friday, February 12, 2016.
Awards for Academic Excellence are given for academic accomplishments that go beyond the classroom experience. Awards for Outstanding Achievement are presented for excellence in activities that relate to the co-curricular life of the University and surrounding community.
Although students will be given an opportunity to submit relevant supplementary material in support of their nomination, letters of reference play the most significant role in forming the selection committee’s decision. It is important, therefore, that you describe in detail the student’s specific accomplishments, above and beyond good performance and completion of curricular requirements.
The University’s 34th Undergraduate Excellence and Outstanding Achievement Annual Ceremony will be held on Monday, April 25, 2016 at 7 pm in the Student Activities Center. This ceremony provides an opportunity to publicly honor the outstanding accomplishments of our undergraduate students and the faculty and staff who mentor them.
