Top graduate students to be honored

March 31, 1998

KALAMAZOO -- A total of 32 graduate students will be honored for their contributions to the scholarly and artistic productivity of Western Michigan University at a reception Tuesday, April 14, in the Bernhard Center.

The event to honor this year's Graduate Research and Creative Scholars will run from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in the President's Dining Room. Preceding the reception at 3 p.m., selected recipients of the award will make short presentations on their research and creative activities in Room 159 of the Bernhard Center. The public is invited to attend both events.

This is the 13th year that the awards will be made by the Graduate College, the Graduate Studies Council of the Faculty Senate and the Graduate Student Advisory Committee. Departments were asked to identify outstanding students at the master's, specialist and doctoral levels who were enrolled in the University since spring 1997. Those students are designated as Department Graduate Research and Creative Scholars.

The department scholars were then evaluated by a selection committee and 10 were selected for the additional honor of University Graduate Research and Creative Scholar.

The 32 students will receive certificates of recognition. The 10 students earning all-University awards will have a notation placed on their permanent transcripts and in the commencement program.
