Do you know a student, faculty, postdoc, or staff member who deserves recognition for their work? The College of the Environment Awards recognize 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.

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

  • Distinguished Staff Member
  • Exceptional Mentoring of Undergraduates
  • Graduate Dean’s Medalist
  • Outstanding Community Impact: Staff, Faculty or Student
  • Outstanding Diversity Commitment
  • Outstanding Teaching Faculty
  • Undergraduate Dean’s Medalist

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

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 communications and at a departmental award ceremony.

More information about award criteria and submission instructions are available on the UW Environment website. Nominations must be submitted by 5:00 pm on Friday, March 10, 2023, to be considered.
