Call for nominations for the Ernest Spaights Plaza Award

The UWM Honorary Degrees Committee invites members of the UWM community to nominate individuals associated with the university to be honored by inclusion on the Spaights Plaza marker for 2019.

Ordinarily, eligible nominees must have terminated their formal relationship with the institution for one calendar year. However, exceptions will be made for the nominations of persons who have ended their formal connection with the university within less than a year, should their health place them at risk.

Inclusion on the Spaights Plaza marker is one of the highest honors awarded by UWM to a member of the university community, and is an enduring means by which the institution pays a timeless tribute to colleagues who have made significant and lasting contributions to the university. You are strongly encouraged to make one or more nominations.

This year’s deadline for submissions is Thursday, April 25, 2019. More information about criteria and nomination instructions is available on the secretary of the university’s website.
