College of Education awards are given each year at our college’s graduation ceremony, an event that occurs just prior to the university graduation in June. Four awards are presented: to a staff person, a faculty person, a student and an alumnus or friend of the college. The purpose of the awards is to recognize individuals who have furthered the vision, mission, values and goals of the college.
2014 Award Winners
Student award: The student award is presented to an undergraduate or graduate student enrolled in a degree-awarding program in the College of Education who, in their work and accomplishments, has advanced the vision, mission, values, and goals of the College of Education. (See the vision, mission, values and goals statements below.)
Staff award: The staff award is presented to an individual who has a full-time appointment to the college and has advanced the vision, mission, values, and goals of the college.
Faculty award: The faculty award is presented to a faculty person, with at least a half-time appointment with the college, who has advanced the vision, mission, values, and goals of the college.
Alumnus/Friend award: The alumnus/friend award is presented to either an alumnus or a friend who has advanced the vision, mission, values, and goals of the college. A ‘friend’ of the college is an individual who has advanced the interests of the college but are not an alum, faculty or staff person.
Over the years, awards have gone to individuals exclusively. This year, awards can go to individuals or groups. If there are individuals who worked in a group on a project that is worthy of recognition for advancing the interests of the college, nominations of groups are welcomed.
