You have gone beyond the academic challenges placed in front of you to think critically, question established knowledge, and to consistently raise the level of thinking and dialogue in class and with each faculty member you have encountered. You represent the best of what we at UC Davis stand for: commitment to your intellectual community and world-class academic performance.   

- Carolyn Thomas, Vice Provost & Dean for Undergraduate Education

On Monday, May 13, Undergraduate Education was honored to present the Outstanding Senior Awards for 2019 with Chancellor Gary May and Provost Ralph Hexter. Graduating seniors representing more than 80 majors were selected by their departments to receive the award in recognition of their contributions to the intellectual environments of their departments, whether through involvement in a research group or creative production, significant contributions to classroom discussion, leadership in student groups committed to the advancement of learning, or other intellectual pursuits with faculty and fellow students.  

Carolyn Thomas, Vice Provost & Dean for Undergraduate Education, teamed up with Gary May, Ralph Hexter, and Director of International and Academic English, Dawn Takaoglu, to present the awards as part of the campuswide Outstanding Student Awards Ceremony held at the Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts.
