Weinberg College Community Building Award

Departments, Programs, and undergraduate students are invited to submit nominations for the Weinberg College Community Building Award. The award carries a cash stipend of $5,000.


The award recognizes faculty who foster a sense of community both inside and outside the classroom and who make students feel valued as members of the Northwestern intellectual community.

Nomination materials

Both the letter of nomination and the supporting letters from students should describe the contributions to community made by the nominated faculty member and a list of any activities that the nominee may have undertaken for Northwestern undergraduates (advising, work with student groups, etc.).

The deadline for receipt of materials in the Dean's Office is Monday, March 2, 2020.  A single PDF file of the nomination materials for each candidate should be emailed to Steven Cole. Please feel free to address questions or comments to him as well.
