Dean's Special Recognition Award

CBE Dean’s Special Recognition Award

Approved by the CBE Student Affairs Committee November 2011
Approved by the CBE Faculty December 2011

Each year in February, CBE faculty and staff may nominate a student or small group of students for this award. The nomination must include an explanation of the meritorious action that warrants recognition. Examples (not an exhaustive list) of meritorious activities are:

  1. Noteworthy performance on a class project or paper (above and beyond expectations)

  2. Noteworthy service to the College or University community

  3. Noteworthy service in the external community

  4. Other (overcoming serious impediments, being a good role model, contributing to an ethical environment, etc.)

Note: This is not for a high GPA or a good class grade. We have other awards for that.

Rules for Nominations

  1. Each CBE faculty and staff member may submit only one nomination per year for a student or a small group of students involved in the same activity.

  2. The student/group of students must have a first major in CBE.

  3. The nomination should be sent as an email attachment in Word format to Connie Fassino, Dean’s Assistant, no later than March 1.

The CBE Dean will review all nominations and select the award winners. Each award winner will receive a certificate of merit signed by the dean and the nominator. There will be a section of the web site (name, picture, action) to highlight the award winners. All winners will be recognized at the CBE spring awards ceremony.
