The College of Arts and Sciences is pleased to announce the creation of two new annual awards for graduate students: The Leadership and Social Justice Award and the Wallace Loh Academic Excellence Award.
The Leadership and Social Justice Award will annually recognize one graduate student in the College of Arts and Sciences who has demonstrated exceptional leadership abilities and commitment to social justice through their academic work and their work in the community. Recipients of this award will be innovative forward thinkers, making new roads in their chosen field and carrying with them the founding principles of a Jesuit education by making choices as a leader for a just and humane world. Candidates for this award may be nominated by graduate faculty, staff, or students.
The Wallace Loh Academic Excellence Award will be given to an outstanding graduating student in the College of Arts and Sciences Graduate Programs. Selection is based upon exceptional graduate work in the classroom. Qualification for this award is evidenced by paper/article submission, conference presentations, fellowship or scholarship awards, and interdisciplinary scholarship. The award honors the impact that Dr. Wallace Loh had upon graduate programs in the College of Arts and Sciences. Dr. Loh served as Dean of the college from 1999-2008. Under his leadership, four of the seven Arts and Sciences graduate programs were created. Candidates for this award must be nominated by their graduate program. Each graduate program can nominate one student annually.
Recipients of both awards will be recognized at this year’s graduate commencement ceremony. Nomination criteria for both the Wallace Loh Academic Excellence Award and the Leadership and Social Justice award, can be found at the Graduate Student Advisory Council website at: http://www2.seattleu.edu/artsci/services/default.aspx?id=11820
