13thAnnual Student Awards Convocation

The College of Education and Human Services is pleased to highlight our Convocation and Award Ceremony Honorees.

As the Spring semester came to a close we wanted to take time to celebrate our students' accomplishments. 

Our professors and administration would like to honor the outstanding work of undergraduate and graduate students who have been selected to receive department awards in their chosen major.


On Wednesday, April 14, at 5:30 p.m. we shared a special video presentation via e-mail honoring the outstanding work of our undergraduate and graduate students. All were invited to attend! Some joined us from their computer, tablet or phone. They streamed it on their big screen TV and hosted watch parties in Zoom! 


Congratulations to this year's Honorees!
