Dear Colleagues:

At the University, we take great pride in our legacy of exceptional teaching, research and service that tremendously impact the world, leaving it a better place for future generations. To promote and encourage these tenets of our institutional mission and vision, we bestow the annual Premier Awards on those in our community who personify the character of the Capstone to the highest standard. The Premier Awards are reserved only for the most outstanding among our students, faculty, staff, and other members of the UA family.

Next week, the University Awards Committee will begin accepting nominations and applications for these awards. Please consider your students and colleagues who lead and serve their community, exemplify academic excellence or a commitment to equity and inclusion and nominate them or encourage them to apply.

Beginning Thursday, November 1, junior and senior students may apply until December 1, 2018. Students may apply for one award, and nominators may download the non-student application by visiting premierawards.ua.edu. If you have specific questions regarding this process, please contact External Relations at 205-348-6275 or studentlife@ua.edu.

 Thank you for your support in celebrating and fostering excellence at The University of Alabama!
