Nominate an adult undergraduate for an Outstanding Returning Adult Student Award

Feb. 12, 2013

by Mary Lock Albrecht

In addi­tion to attend­ing classes and doing home­work, many return­ing adult stu­dents are also jug­gling chil­dren, jobs, com­mu­nity work and other responsibilities.


Each year the Office of Adult Career and Spe­cial Stu­dent Ser­vices rec­og­nizes two adult stu­dents with the Out­stand­ing Under­grad­u­ate Return­ing Adult Stu­dent Award. The nom­i­na­tion dead­line is 5 p.m., Fri­day, Feb. 15.

Two win­ners and three final­ists are selected for this cash award. They are selected for their excep­tional deter­mi­na­tion, per­se­ver­ance, lead­er­ship and ser­vice to the community.

UW-Madison fac­ulty, staff, stu­dents, or mem­bers of the com­mu­nity may sub­mit nominations.  It’s easy and quick–you only need the student’s name and your con­tact infor­ma­tion. To learn more and to nom­i­nate some­one go to http://continuingstudies.wisc.edu/advising/adultstudent-award.htm
