Recipients are expected to have engaged in a variety of activities demonstrating the diversity of commitment in serving their communities while making a significant investment to at least one community-based experience over time.


Upon completion of the application process, students who are selected will receive their medallions at a special ceremony, and may proudly wear their medallions at UNF’s commencement ceremony.
