Public Service | Recognition will honor an alum that best exemplifies leadership in public service or community service in the spirit of volunteerism. Service is considered based on the breadth and depth of the service and in context of the commitment to lifelong service engagement.

The award honors the alum who has distinguished himself or herself through meritorious service to the profession itself and/or society through advancing the university’s liberal arts values.
