RE: Nomination Information for Hancher Finkbine Medallion for Students Awards

Each year CLAS is eligible to nominate two students for the Hancher Finkbine Medallion. This award honors students who demonstrate exceptional achievement in learning, leadership, and loyalty. 

In the past, departments have been asked to submit completed nominations to be certified by the Associate Dean.  This year there will be a slight change to this process due to the number of departments which have already indicated an interest in making a nomination.  CLAS requests that interested departments submit a short (less than one page) document that:

  • provides basic information about the student (name, major, UID number)
  • very briefly addresses how the student meets the medallion criteria of learning, leadership, and loyalty.  

Please send the pre-nomination documents for undergraduate students to, and pre-nomination documents for graduate students to by the end of the day on February 16.  Associate Deans Lang and Getz will select two undergraduate and two graduate students for the full nomination process and contact departments with the results on February 17. Departments will then complete and submit the nomination form online to the Division of Student Life by February 24. 

Thank you for your generous support of our students and for taking the time to complete the nomination process.
