One of the hallmarks of Boise State is the way the university cares for its students, colleagues, communities and the world. The President’s Community Service Award honors members of the campus community whose commitment to service goes above and beyond. Nominations are now being accepted for the 2020-2021 awards via the form on the We Serve web page.
Nominations are accepted year round and the finalists will be selected by a committee with representatives from Human Resource Services, the Professional Staff Association, the Association of Classified Employees, and the Faculty Senate. The finalists will then be submitted to the president for review and final determination of the winners.
Nominations for the 2020-2021 awards will be accepted until Oct. 1.
