The Ross Oglesby Award

PREEMINENT
FACULTY AND STAFF

Given out each year to a distinguished faculty or staff member who has served the university for at least 10 years, The Ross Oglesby Award is a long-standing Garnet and Gold Key tradition.

First given out in 1973 to a geology professor named Stephen Winters, the award exemplifies the highest order of integrity, service and commitment to both the university and its students. It is a Garnet and Gold Key tradition that the recipient of the award remains a closely guarded secret until the moment of its presentation and conferral.


College Deans will be contacted in Fall 2021 by the Garnet and Gold Key President to begin the nomination process
