Graduate Community of Scholars Tribute

The Graduate Community of Scholars Tribute, which is presented annually during the spring Graduate Forum, was established by the Graduate Studies Committee in 2001 to recognize departments or programs whose ongoing work and scholarly activities embody the School's five graduate tenets.  After being awarded in the spring, the Graduate Community of Scholars Tribute's poster is moved to the new department where it is displayed for the next academic year. A plaque announcing the recipients hangs in the office of the School of Graduate Studies.
