Graduating Senior Awards
For the future: All materials must be received by the due date for due consideration by the Academic Standing and Advising Committee prior to reporting the slate to the May faculty meeting. As a reminder, this process should be completely confidential. Please take extra care not to discuss the awards, the process or the nominations with the students, and keep all affiliated materials out of the reach and eyes of the students. Also, it is critical to the committee’s ability to appropriately determine awards that the nominator writes a letter of recommendation that speaks to how the student meets the criteria for the award.
