A completed nomination form is required and must be submitted by the deadline. A nomination form can be downloaded here.

  • Consistent efforts to be respectful and inclusive of other cultures and viewpoints
  • Contributions that improve the climate at the University of St. Thomas for other cultures and people
  • Connections made between the University of St. Thomas community and the world

The staff of the international programs is comprised of the offices of International Students & Scholars, International Admissions, Graduate Admissions, Study Abroad, ELS Language Center, and the Center for Global & Local Engagement. International programs staff will select a candidate or candidates from the nominations submitted.

The presentation of the award(s) will be made at the 27th Annual International Dinner that will be held Saturday, April 30. Recipients will be notified of their award by letter and will receive two tickets to the dinner, where they will receive a certificate and a desktop award globe.
