Silver Paw Award

The Silver Paw Award

The Silver Paw Award is a recognition program sponsored by the ASUN Center for Student Engagement. The goal of the award program is to recognize students who embody the ideals and spirit of an engaged student.

Student Engagement fosters the development of student's civic responsibility, responsible citizenship, leadership and personal growth. Recipients of The Silver Paw Award will exhibit this spirit, and will be a student that the University of Nevada, Reno is proud to call its own. This award will shed light on those students who typically don't receive recognition for their work but who deserves the campus community's appreciation.

Recipients of The Silver Paw Award will be chosen monthly during the academic year.  The student or group of students will receive a personalized plaque, and will have their profile and accomplishments displayed prominently on campus.
