During the month of February, students, staff, and faculty members can submit online nominations for these awards. After all nominations have been received, they are reviewed by ad hoc committees who recommend the top candidates to the Dean for the final decision. Award recipients are selected in early May and are notified directly by the Dean.

Awardees and nominees are acknowledged at a college-wide reception at the end of the academic year.
