The Norbertine Leadership and Service Awards recognize selfless devotion to improving St. Norbert College and the greater community; to going above and beyond in appreciating human differences; to establishing connections between students, faculty, and staff; and living the college mission.

Beloved Community Social Justice Award

This award will be given annually to one student and one faculty or staff member who has actively worked to make the St. Norbert community a more just, equitable environment, for more of our members, fulfilling the vision of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “Beloved Community.”

Students and staff/faculty who demonstrate a commitment to this ideal, and who have actively worked to create positive change within the campus community will be recognized with this award. Through this award our community will name and acclaim those in our midst who most actively promote communio by "embracing all people" and "affirming the sacred dignity of all persons," as expressed in the SNC mission statement.
