The six Transforming U: Beacons of Excellence awards celebrate “best practices” found across campus, including labs, student clubs, individuals, centers and more. Since the award was created in 2012, hundreds of nominations have been submitted by students, faculty, staff and community members.

Nominations are currently being accepted and are due by Monday, April 13, at 5 p.m.

Recipients of the 2015 awards will be honored throughout the year in print and other media outlets on campus and in the community.
