UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
In 1977, the Chancellor and the Student Affairs staff began considering a way of honoring UWRF students who had made significant non-academic contributions to the university. In 1980, the Chancellor's Award for Students was first awarded to five recipients. Since then, 5-12 students have been selected every year to receive this honor in recognition of their service to UW-River Falls.
Awards are presented at the annual Chancellor's Award Reception to which the recipients, their families, fellow students and faculty are invited.
