Each year, we recognize outstanding members of our community through The Graduate School Awards and the Ver Steeg Awards.
The Graduate School Awards
The 2017 Awards and Recognition Ceremony took place on March 28, 2017. 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.
