Service to students award nominations due Feb. 3

Nominations are being accepted through Feb. 3 for the James V. Griesen Exemplary Service to Students Award.

The honor was established in 1986 as the Chancellor’s Exemplary Service to Students award. It was renamed in 2006 to honor Griesen’s service to students. Griesen retired as vice chancellor for student affairs on July 30, 2006. He continued to work as a professor in educational administration and is now an emeritus professor. The award recognizes extraordinary and sustained performance by individuals serving Nebraska students.

The award, which includes a $1,500 stipend provided by the University of Nebraska Foundation via private funds, will be presented during Honors Convocation on April 23.

All Nebraska employees are eligible. Nominations may be made by students, faculty, staff and administrators. The nomination form is available online.
