Now accepting nominations for the 2014 Alumni Awards for Excellence

Thursday, August 21 2014

It is that time of year again to think about nominations for the Alumni Awards for Excellence to honor outstanding students within your departments or in your classrooms. Each year we receive many competitive student nominations and hope to continue to see that trend follow for the 2012 awards.

Community members and various faculty, staff, retirees and alumni donate their time to judge these students on academic, campus and community involvement while at our University. This year we will honor approximately 55 students- 40 undergraduate and 15 from the College of Law and College of Graduate Studies.

Each student award recipient in turn selects a University of Idaho faculty or staff member who has been inspirational during their college career to share the honor. We do not share the nominator information with the students and ask that you submit your nomination without their knowledge. Both will be recognized at the Alumni Awards for Excellence banquet Friday, December 12, 2014 by invitation.

On behalf of the University Of Idaho Office of Alumni Relations, we thank you for your dedication and commitment to the academic excellence and success of our students and future alumni. We look forward to seeing this year’s nominations.
