Each year, we recognize outstanding members of our community through The Graduate School Awards and the Ver Steeg Awards.
The Graduate School Awards
The 2016 Awards and Recognition Ceremony took place on March 8, 2016. Awards were presented in three main areas, reflecting The Graduate School's Strategic Plan: Diversity, Service and Engagement.
The awards for diversity recognize individuals who have contributed to an environment which values diverse backgrounds, approaches, and perspectives, which we at The Graduate School believe are essential ingredients for academic excellence.
Peter Rios | Biomedical Engineering
Franz Geiger | Professor, Chemistry
Veronika Hoeke | Postdoctoral Fellow, Chemistry

Service can mean many things, and in this case, the common thread for our honorees is they have gone above and beyond the call of duty to be of assistance to The Graduate School and our constituents.
Kristi Ward | Communication Science & Disorders
Kenzie Cameron | Research Associate Professor, Division of General Internal Medicine and Geriatrics, Feinberg School of Medicine
