Tower Award Nominations Being Accepted Until April 6

UT Tower

The Longhorn Center for Community Engagement invites you to nominate deserving students, faculty, staff and registered UT student organizations for the 2016 Tower Awards! Each year, numerous Longhorns give their time, talent, resources and voice to help strengthen their local community, and we need your help to identify outstanding community engagement efforts.

Nominations from local non-profit organizations, community members, UT faculty, staff, students, and registered student organizations are currently being accepted.

The Tower Awards are presented annually to honor and highlight excellence in service among the students, faculty and staff at The University of Texas at Austin as well as partners in the community. The goal is to increase awareness of collective public service contributions, to celebrate such efforts, and to inspire continued action.
