Arizona Regents Award

ARIZONA REGENTS' AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING SERVICE TO HIGHER EDUCATION

The Regents' Award for Outstanding Service to Higher Education was created in 1996. This award was established to recognize groups or individuals who make important and lasting contributions to the higher education system in Arizona. Former Regent Donald Ulrich developed the concept for the 10 pound bronze sculpture of a globe with a mortar board and diploma.  The cost of creating and casting the bronze award is entirely funded by private contributions from current and former Regents. Nominations are made by or through any current or former Regent.
