Learning to a Greater Degree Nomination Form

Recognize those who exemplify Learning to a Greater Degree

Learning to a Greater Degree conveys the essence of UCM. Just as the strategic positioning is supported by the four reasons to believe, members of the UCM community support the reasons to believe and give life to the platform. The university would like to recognize those individuals in the university community who are living examples of why we believe in Learning to a Greater Degree. 

Each semester, one student and one faculty/staff member will be recognized by receiving the Learning to a Greater Degree Award. These individuals will be presented with their award and formally recognized at a Board of Governors meeting and have their names added to a plaque displayed in the lobby of the Administration Building. 

Each nominee will be evaluated based on how they exemplify one or more of the reasons to believe. Nominees and nominators must be a current UCM faculty or staff member, or an enrolled UCM student. You may nominate more than one person, but please do not submit multiple applications for the same individual. Nominees submitted for fall semester, who are not selected for the award, will automatically be considered again for spring.

To nominate someone, please fill out the form below. Selection of award recipients will be based solely upon the quality of information provided on this form
