The Tower Awards


The Tower Awards are presented annually to honor excellence in volunteerism among the students, faculty, and staff of The University of Texas at Austin.  Since 1992, awards have been presented at an on-campus ceremony to honor the dedication of Longhorn community.  Today the ceremony recognizes students, faculty, and staff of the university, as well as community agencies and university-community partnership efforts.

Most awards are nomination-based, and are granted based on the decision of a selection committee.  Nominations begin in February, and the event takes place at the close of each academic year.

Nominations are accepted in the following categories:
