Founded during Washington University in St. Louis’ Sesquicentennial year, the Gerry and Bob Virgil Ethic of Service Award is an annual award recognizing a select group of WashU community members who exemplify a character of service and contribution to the St. Louis region.
Any member of the WashU community, past or current, who resides in and serves the St. Louis community is eligible to receive the award. This includes students, faculty, staff, alumni, retirees, and volunteers of the university.
We are accepting nominations for the 2018 Ethic of Service Award now through Friday, February 2, at 5:00 pm. Announcements will be made in March, and honorees will be recognized at a reception, followed by a private dinner, in mid-April.
Nominations must be submitted online, and supplemental materials will not be accepted. Nominators are strongly encouraged to review the selection committee’s tips for writing a quality nomination.
