The Student Recognition and Awards Committee coordinates awards that are all-University in nature and that are awarded by faculty to students. The Committee also oversees and helps to plan and conduct, with the support of the ex-officio and University Events, an assembly or other appropriate program for the presentation of these awards to their recipients. The ex-officio works closely with the committee and is responsible for providing student data to the chair, and coordinating tasks associated with the all-university recognition and awards program. The Committee is responsible for selecting the recipients of the Drucilla Shepard Smith Scholastic Awards, and the Clara H. Waldo and E.A. Cummings Outstanding Student Awards.
The Committee consists of ten Faculty, up to eight Students, and a representative from the Scholarship Office, ex-officio, non-voting.
