Exceptional Citizenship Award

Exceptional Citizenship Award

The Dean of Students Office recognizes students’ contribution to making the University campus a safer community through the Exceptional Citizenship Award. This award is given to students who decide to act with courage and moral character in challenging circumstances. Previous award recipients have intervened in incidents to prevent harm to others, reacted quickly to an emergency situation, and chosen to act with integrity instead of for personal gain.

If you know of a student who has acted as a true Badger with exceptional citizenship, the Dean of Students Office wants to know! Please email us at dean@studentlife.wisc.edu and include “Citizenship Award” in the subject line. Include your full name, the student’s name, details about the incident, and your contact information in the email. While not all students may a Citizenship Award, we will try to recognize each student that we hear about.
