Minnie and Joe Engle Student Humanitairan Award

The Minnie and Joe Engel Student Humanitarian Award recognizes a Buffalo State College undergraduate student who has demonstrated personal character through altruism, volunteer service and the giving of oneself to the campus and the larger community.  The Engel Humanitarian Award recognizes the full measure of a person’s worth, not just as a scholar, but as someone whose efforts on behalf of others define a quality of character that embodies core values that merit recognition.  A plaque and award citing the recipient's distinction is presented at a ceremony held in the spring and the recipient may receive a monetary award, pending availability of funds.
