Community Partner Awards
The ACE Awards were created to recognize and honor outstanding efforts and achievements made toward the development and practice of the field of community engagement inside and outside of the UNC campus in order to prioritize, strengthen, and solidify community-based learning and research. The primary mission of this award is to make service learning and civic engagement the expectation inside and outside research fields to denote the need for more efficient, dynamic, and high-quality UNC-Community partnerships.
Categories awarded include, but are not limited to: undergraduate student, graduate student, faculty member, staff (exempt and classified staff), and Greeley/Weld County/regional organization and/or partner.
Please refer to the guiding principles outlined below to see if you or a fellow community partner qualify.
Community partners can self-nominate or be nominated by UNC students, faculty, staff members, or other community partners. Application opens in Fall 2020.
