The College of the Environment recognizes individuals and teams who have gone above and beyond their own roles and have made significant contributions not only to our college, but to the University of Washington overall and the communities we serve.  We invite you to take a look at the accomplishments of our amazing community and their contributions in moving us forward as a progressive and innovative environment in which to learn, work, and engage with our communities, locally and globally.

Each year the College of the Environment recognizes outstanding members of our College community in the following categories:

Individuals or groups may be nominated in all of the above categories except Undergraduate and Graduate Dean’s Medalist Awards, which are individual awards. Specific eligibility criteria apply to each award.

During Winter Quarter, students, postdocs, staff, and faculty members can submit nominations for these awards. After all nominations have been received, they are reviewed by an ad hoc committee who recommends the top candidates to the Dean for the final decision.  Award recipients receive $1,000 (or $500/person if they are recognized as a member of a team award) and are recognized both in College publications and at a departmental award ceremony.
