Nomination, Selection and Award Procedures

  • Any individual may make a nomination for the Luther College Distinguished Service Award.  To be considered, nominations must be submitted to the president’s office in writing (email will suffice) and will clearly identify how the nominee meets some or all of the criteria listed above. Members of the selection committee can also make nominations. The deadline for applications is June 15.
  • Nominations submitted will be kept on file in confidence for a period of five years.  Nominations need not be resubmitted during this timeframe.
  • The award need not be presented annually, but will be done so at the discretion of the committee when a truly worthy candidate is nominated. 
  • The selection committee will be appointed by the President and will normally consist of at least one staff member from each campus, two Board members, and one or two other members of the Luther College community whether that be alumni, former staff, parents, past recipients, etc.  The President will try to have committee members serve more than a year at a time to give some continuity to the committee’s deliberations.
  • Given the two campus nature of Luther College, the Committee will try to give some balance to whether the recipient’s chief service was to the LCUR or LCHS campus.  It is preferred though not mandatory that the award alternate between recipients more easily identified with the LCUR and the LCHS campus.
  • The award will be presented by the President, the Chair of the Board of Regents  or their designate at a suitable occasion at the discretion of the selection committee (for example, Founders’ Day, a long-service ceremony, a Convocation ceremony, a Board of Regents event, or an event specific to the award).  If the nominee is not able to attend the event, the award will be presented in absentia.

Nominations can be submitted at any time. To nominate a candidate for the award, please complete the form below.
