In 1893, our first ten alumnae adopted “Service” as our one-word motto. Since that time, UNCG has demonstrated an ongoing commitment to service to the community, state, and nation. Service is central to all we do and, therefore, we honor and recognize those who have dedicated themselves to serving others.
Annually, the UNCG Board of Trustees confers its highest honors on behalf of the University to exalt exemplary public service and civic engagement. The Charles Duncan McIver Award was established to recognize North Carolinians who have rendered unusually distinguished service to our state or nation. The Adelaide F. Holderness/H. Michael Weaver Award is designed to recognize North Carolinians who have served our local community, but who may not have achieved prominence for their actions.
UNCG requests your careful consideration in the nomination of individuals who deserve recognition for all they have done for our society. While the recipients are often UNCG alumni, the awards are intended to honor any remarkable North Carolinian, regardless of alma mater.
