UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Do you know a
student who has significantly contributed to making UW-River Falls a better
place? Nominate them for the Chancellor's Award for Students!
The Chancellor's Award for Students is the
highest non-academic honor a student can receive at UW-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 for Students reception to which the recipients, their families, fellow students and faculty are invited.
