Dean's Citations

The Graduate Dean's Citations for Academic Excellence were created to recognize outstanding academic achievement of graduate students. Graduate students are nominated for these awards by faculty and staff engaged in graduate education that are familiar with the individual student's accomplishments, with final selection being made by the Dean of the Graduate School. Awards are given to students who have completed their program or are very close to completion.

The Graduate School began awarding the Dean's Citations in the Spring of 2006 at the first-ever Graduate Student Celebration. The ceremony is devoted exclusively to recognition of the academic excellence of graduate students during their studies at Grand Valley State University. The Graduate Student Association (GSA) co-hosts this event, which includes a reception and awards presentation.
