The Jesuit 100 Association: The MAGIS AWARDS
The Jesuit 100 will again sponsor two awards – one for a student and one for a member of the faculty, administration or staff – to be presented at the Honors Convocation Mass on April 6, 2008.
The UDM Mission Statement highlights four characters of the University: Catholic, excellent education, student centered, and urban. This award seeks to reward behavior that strengthens the first of those characters: UDM's Catholic identity. Magis is the Latin word for More. Therefore criteria for choosing recipients include: actions that have more far-reaching effects; actions that address a currently unmet need; and actions that improve the way UDM lives out its Catholic character as opposed to actions that continue what is already in place.
Among the areas where actions that enhance the Catholic character may be found are: UDM’s curriculum that emphasizes values and promotes an understanding of religious, spiritual, and ethical dimensions of human life; University ministry that provides and promotes opportunities of worship and spiritual development; and a commitment to build a sense of community that respects the dignity of persons from diverse cultures and traditions.
Please consider nominating outstanding members of the UDM community for these awards. To do so, prepare a one-page recommendation indicating what your candidate has done above and beyond his or her job or student responsibilities to enhance the Catholic identity of UDM. Recommendations should be sent to Emmy Yousey, c/o the President's Office, FAC 500, McNichols Campus, or firstname.lastname@example.org and are due by February 25, 2008.
The Executive Committee of the Jesuit 100 Association will consider nominations and the committee's decisions will be final.
