We are thrilled to announce we will seek nominations for our alumni awards not only from faculty and staff this year, but from community members, friends of the SOE, and yes, alumni! We encourage anyone in our community to submit nominations for deserving classmates and friends, and we also encourage self nominations. The four awards we give are Early Career, Distinguished Career, Outstanding Achievement, and Distinguished Service.
We are accepting nominations through the end of today. You may find a description of the awards and submit nominations through this form.
The awards will be given at the SOE commencement on May 12 at the Greensboro Coliseum, where the winners will be members of the platform party.
