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.
We typically accept nominations in following categories:
Outstanding Academic Service Learning Professor Award
Outstanding Academic Service Learning Course Award
Outstanding Faculty/Staff Award
Outstanding Service Project Award
Outstanding Student Award
Outstanding Student Organization Award
The Bright Future Award
