The William M. Plater Civic Engagement Medallion was established in 2006 to honor graduates who have excelled in their commitment to the community through activities such as service learning, volunteerism, community/social issue advocacy, community work-study, and political engagement.
The application is due annually on March 1st.
IUPUI holds in high esteem its mission as an urban, civically engaged institution. The campus has been nationally recognized for its promotion and support of student civic engagement through avenues such as curricular service learning, co-curricular community service, and community-based employment. The medallion is named in honor of IUPUI's former Executive Vice Chancellor and Dean of the Faculties from 1988 to 2006, Dr. William Plater, a strong advocate of civic engagement during his career.
Students who are awarded the William M. Plater Civic Engagement Medallion have demonstrated both depth and diversity of commitment in serving their communities. Recipients of the medallion will have exhibited personal development, intellectual growth, and positive community impact as a result of their civic engagement experiences. Recipients are expected to have engaged in a variety of activities while making a significant investment to at least one community experience over time.
