Alumni and friends,

We invite you to nominate alumni whose efforts in public service and civic engagement have positively impacted people’s lives. 

With the President’s Award for Public Service and Civic Engagement, Stanford celebrates the work and commitment of alumni who live lives of purpose, making a difference in their communities and the world through their dedication to public service. 

Award recipients will exemplify the university’s mission and values, and demonstrate a commitment to learning, social responsibility, and ethical and effective service

Award criteria are aligned closely with the Haas Center’s Pathways of Public Service and Civic Engagement (Community Engaged Learning and Research, Community Organizing and Activism, Direct Service, Philanthropy, Policy and Governance, Social Entrepreneurship and Corporate Social Responsibility).

You are welcome to nominate living alumni, from recent graduates to those with more established careers. Self-nominations will not be accepted. Once submitted, nominations remain active for three years. Recipients will be selected by a committee that includes alumni and faculty. The award will be presented at Commencement in June.
