2020-2021 Academic Awards

Each year the College of Arts & Sciences recognizes the exemplary work of students majoring and minoring in departments across the College. Not only do these students go beyond expectations to demonstrate their commitment to these disciplines, but many of them are also double and triple majors with multiple minors; they’re members of honor societies, they participate in student organizations that put into practice what they’ve learned through their coursework, and they give back to the greater Spokane community by volunteering with local nonprofits.

Here we have collated these exceptional students’ reflections on impactful moments of their academic careers and how their areas of study have contributed to their personal and professional development. Their responses clearly exhibited each of the values a Jesuit institution strives to develop.
