This award is given to recognize an outstanding community member and/or agency that has worked closely with the University to promote public scholarship (community service, service-learning, civic engagement, etc.) amongst Truman students. Community Partners play a vital role in engaging campuses and students with communities to meet critical needs. Any community member and/or agency can be nominated for the award through a brief application process via the Center for Student Involvement, which will assemble a committee to review applications and select the award recipient. While there will be one nominee recognized for their generous work, other finalists will be acknowledged as well.
