The annual season of recognition for outstanding members of the UT community includes a student component via the Parks-Thompson Student Organization Awards and the Multicultural Student Leader Awards.
Both awards include multiple categories for student organizations and individuals, and both are open to nominations through Friday, March 13.
“This year, monetary awards will be given in conjunction with recognition awards. For winning student organizations, the award amount will be added to the 2015-2016 operating budget in addition to the base budget already allocated. For Multicultural Student Award winners, Rocket Dollars will be part of the award,” said Tamika Mitchell, dean for the student experience.
Students are the source for most of the nominations received, she added, but staff and faculty are encouraged to bring forward rising multicultural student leaders who deserve recognition, as well as high-performing student organizations.
Complete information and nomination forms for the Parks-Thompson awards (named to honor Donald S. Parks, longtime dean of students, and Dr. Lancelot C.A. Thompson, former vice president of student affairs) can be found here.
