2022 President's Distinguished Service Award

2022 President's Distinguished Service Award Recipients


Congratulations to our very own geology undergraduate Mackenzie "Ruthy" Rutherford on her award!

Each year, Miami University honors senior students whose service to Miami and our surrounding community embodies Love and Honor with the President’s Distinguished Service Award. Their service through campus life, community service, intellectual and cultural leadership or student employment demonstrates the spirit of being a citizen leader of uncommon quality.

The award is considered one of the top awards bestowed to students by the university. 

The 2022 President’s Distinguished Service Award recognizes outstanding students who graduated in December 2021 or January 2022, or are set to graduate in May or August 2022.

Recipients were selected from a pool of 45 nominees. At a ceremony on April 10, they will each receive a medallion to be worn with commencement regalia.

Nominations for the annual award are submitted by faculty and staff across all Miami campuses as part of the Student Service Leadership Award program. The President’s Distinguished Service Award program began in 1985.
