Ethic of service award nominations sought

The Community Service Program within the Office of Student Activities is taking nominations for the University’s first Sesquicentennial Ethic of Service Award.

The Sesquicentennial Ethic of Service Award will recognize a select group of University community members who exemplify a character of service and giving to the St. Louis region. This award serves as a way to treasure the influence St. Louis has on the University, and to honor those WUSTL community members who believe in and shape the future of our region.

“The Sesquicentennial’s eye toward our history and future reminds us of our close ties to the St. Louis region,” said Stephanie Kurtzman, coordinator for community service and chair of the award committee. “We hope this award will help highlight and inspire those who give back to the region in a meaningful way.

“This also is a unique opportunity to recognize that all of us, regardless of age or role at the University, have something important in common: the ability to serve each other and our community.”

Any member of the WUSTL community, past or current, who resides in and serves the St. Louis community is eligible to receive the award. Nominations will be accepted until the Feb. 10 deadline, and award recipients will be invited to a dinner in their honor to encourage dialogue and collaboration.
