The William M. Plater Civic Engagement Medallion was established in 2006 to honor graduates of Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis (IUPUI) who have excelled in their commitment to communities through activities such as service learning, volunteerism, community/social issue advocacy, community work-study, and political engagement. This highly competitive recognition (just fifty medallions are awarded each year) honors undergraduate, graduate and professional students who have shown an exemplary commitment to their communities, and who have displayed personal growth and a positive community impact as a result of their experiences. This interactive presentation will review the origin of the award, the application, and the selection process for the Plater Medallion, with an emphasis on artifacts that student applicants provide and how scoring criteria has been determined and administered. Presenters will discuss the involvement of faculty, staff, and community partners in the selection process, examples of student civic outcomes articulated in the applications, and efforts by IUPUI to invite a diverse representation of applicants. Participants will have an opportunity to review and score a sample application by using several rubrics including an overall application rubric and the Civic Minded Graduate essay rubric. Presenters welcome feedback from attendees regarding the review and selection process of the award.
