- Contributions that improve the climate for other cultures and people at the University of St. Thomas
- Connections made between the UST community and the world
The award is open to all faculty, staff and students of the University of St. Thomas with the exception of International Matrix members, who are excluded from receiving the award.
The presentation of the award(s) will be made at the St. Thomas International Dinner on Saturday, April 29, in the Student Dining Room, Murray-Herrick Campus Center. Ticket and event information for the dinner soon will be available on the Office of International Student Services Web site.
