Why Re-Branding?

We encourage our students to propel themselves into the college experience by getting involved within Tippie and beyond. That being said, credit should be given where credit is due.

Moving forward, we hope to re-brand this award in order to be more inclusive of the undergraduate student population who come from all these backgrounds.

Whether it is through stellar academics or impressive initiative, our faculty and staff know that students can impact the Tippie community in countless ways. It is important to us to acknowledge these impacts and highlight the students who make them.
