Robert Logan Nugent Award

The Robert Logan Nugent Award was established by the Alumni Association in 1964 and was named in memory of Robert Logan Nugent, the Executive Vice President of The University of Arizona when he died in June of 1963. Dr. Nugent served Tucson and the University for more than thirty years and was particularly devoted to guiding and helping Arizona's young men and women. He earned his M.S. in 1925 at The University of Arizona, was a professor of chemistry, dean of the graduate and liberal arts colleges, and vice president before being named to the second highest post at the University.

Candidates should have a record of accomplishments which exemplify the high ideals of Dr. Nugent; i.e., active and enthusiastic participation and service in community and University endeavors.

Eligible undergraduate students are those who have demonstrated above-average scholastic ability, citizenship, leadership, and promise for the future. Students are not considered based only on cumulative grade point average. These awards are for well-rounded individuals whose contributions through co-curricular and community activities and leadership are evident. You need not specify the award for which a student is being nominated; the committee considers all eligible nominees for each award.
