Nancy Welch Award

The Nancy Welch Award, given annually in honor of the former Residential Coordinator of Rachel Carson College, is presented to residential students who have made significant contributions to the University community during the current academic year. You are encouraged to share this information and to nominate eligible students for this Award.



The following award selection criteria will be used:

  • the quality of the program or project developed, implemented, or supported by the nominee

  • the quality of the nominee's contribution to the program or project

  • the degree and quality of participation by others in the program and project initiated or supported by the nominee

  • the quality of the learning experience enjoyed by the nominee in the course of the development, implementation, or support of the program or project

  • the innovative nature of the program or project developed, implemented or supported by the nominee

Any member of the University community can make a nomination. A complete application must be submitted for each nominee. Nominees must be undergraduate students currently living in the residence halls on the North or South Campus or in North Campus apartment complexes. Please note that positive outcomes from nominee volunteerism and creativity will carry more weight in the selection process than positive outcomes from paid job experiences.

First, second, and third place winners will receive a cash award and a plaque noting substantial contributions to the University.

Nomination forms must be completed on line no later than close of business Monday, April 1, 2019. Questions can be directed to Mary Gallivan, Campus Living, 221 Red Jacket Quad, 645-2296 or email meg9@buffalo.edu.
