2012

Each year, we recognize outstanding members of our community through The Graduate School Awards and the Ver Steeg Awards.

The Graduate School Awards

On November 8, 2012 Dean McBride hosted The Graduate School's inaugural Awards and Recognition Dinner, celebrating a number of honorees who make notable contributions to graduate life at Northwestern University. Awards were presented in three main areas, reflecting The Graduate School's Strategic Plan: Diversity, Service and Engagement.

Diversity

The awards for diversity recognize individuals who have contributed to an environment which values diverse backgrounds, approaches, and perspectives, which we at The Graduate School believe are essential ingredients for academic excellence.
