The Founder’s Award

When Abbot Bernard H. Pennings, O.Praem., founded St. Norbert College in 1898, he was committed to supporting personal, intellectual and spiritual development through the efforts of a vibrant educational community. Today, members of the college community continue to demonstrate this same commitment.

The Founder’s Award at St. Norbert College is given to employees and students of the college in recognition of their contributions to the Norbertine spirit and tradition on campus.

Nominations for the award are invited from anyone on campus. A committee reviews the nominations and determines the award winner(s). 

Honorees will be recognized Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2023 at the annual Founder's Day Prayer Breakfast and Awards Presentation. SNC faculty and staff are invited to RSVP for the breakfast on or before Friday, Sept. 29th.

The selection of individuals for the Founder’s Award will be based upon their contributions to the college community by embodying the Norbertine commitment to:

  • Communio, which is characterized by mutual esteem, trust, sincerity, faith and responsibility  
  • Fulfill our vocations by embodying Christ’s example of loving service 
  • Seek peace and reconciliation in the spirit of St. Norbert 
  • Pray and reflect communally and individually 
  • Practice radical hospitality in the spirit of the Gospel and the Rule of St. Augustine

Nominations for the 2023-24 academic year were accepted through Friday, Sept. 15, 2023, but are now closed.
