The University of Southern California annually recognizes those graduating students whose contributions have significantly enriched the quality of life at USC. These students exemplify the USC unifying values and surpass expectations through their leadership, volunteer work, and community engagement. While their realms of influence are diverse, they all share a commitment to bettering their campus, the city of Los Angeles, and the world.

The achievements of these outstanding students will be recognized at the Student Recognition Ceremony on May 11, 2022, presented by USC Student Affairs.

Faculty and staff are eligible to nominate graduating undergraduate and graduate students. Each nominator is responsible for completing the online nomination form, supplying relevant information about each nominee's involvement at USC, and justifying why each nominee deserves recognition. Nomination applications will open in January 2023.

Eligible students must be scheduled to complete their program and graduate within the 2022 - 23 academic year (Fall 2022, Spring 2023, or Summer 2023).
