The Tower Awards are presented annually to honor excellence in volunteerism among the students, faculty, and staff of The University of Texas at Austin. Since 1992, awards have been presented at an on-campus ceremony to honor the dedication of Longhorn community. Today the ceremony recognizes students, faculty, and staff of the university, as well as community agencies and university-community partnership efforts.
