The School of Environment and Sustainability is pleased to invite nominations for two awards for students pursuing our Certificate in Sustainability.
The Certificate in Sustainability Excellence Award will be awarded to a student who has completed their certificate requirements between May 2019 and April 2020. This student will have demonstrated strong understanding of sustainability perspectives and practices, communication ability, leadership qualities, and overall academic standing.
The Outstanding Sustainability in Action Project will recognize a project undertaken during the winter 2020 offering of ENVS 401. Projects being considered for this award should have demonstrated innovative thinking, interdisciplinary knowledge of sustainability issues, and teamwork in problem solving. Nominated projects should also have worked to mobilize knowledge emerging from the project, and have potential to impact campus or community sustainability.
Nominations letters should describe how the candidate (Certificate in Sustainability Excellence Award) or project (Outstanding Sustainability in Action Project) exemplifies strength in the areas identified above. Nominations from peers, faculty or other university members will all be considered, including self-nominations. Nominations from students should be accompanied by a letter of support from a university employee.
All nominations should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before April 10, 2020. Awards will be announced in May.
