Engagement Awards

Students pose holding their awards

Join us in celebrating the efforts of UNMC individuals and groups dedicated to making a positive difference in their communities.

The ITEACH Community Engagement Awards serve as recognition from peers of exemplary work and encourage others to take their educational experience to a new level through service to others.

Award nomination periods typically occur at the beginning of the year, and the award is given in the spring.

The awards are part of a larger partnership between the Student Life, Inclusion and Diversity Office and the Student Senate, which honors individual student and faculty recipients for their contributions to UNMC student culture, as well as student organizations for their impacts throughout the year.

Award Categories

“Our UNMC faculty, staff and students are working hard in our community, often without formal support or recognition. These awards are designed to spotlight and reward exemplary dedication and commitment to our UNMC ITEACH values.”
