Regents Award

The Regents Award is one of the highest honors the University bestows. It is used to recognize individuals, families, and organizations that demonstrate exceptional service to the University over a sustained period of many years.

The Board of Regents votes on each award. A University of Minnesota senior leader or dean may submit a nomination at any time. Once a Regents Award is approved, nominating party is responsible for making arrangements for an award presentation. A Regent must be included in that presentation. 

Regents Award recipients are engraved on the Wall of Honor on the Regents Plaza outside of the McNamara Alumni Center.
