Chancellor's Medals

The Chancellor’s Medal for Student Service is awarded to members of the graduating senior class who have made outstanding contributions to the University (clubs and organizations, campus programs, leadership position, or other activities that improve the quality of life for students at the University of Massachusetts Lowell) during their undergraduate studies in day or online and continuing education programs. While the applicant's entire history will be taken into account, volunteer efforts will be given special consideration in the selection process.

The Chancellor’s Medal for Community Service is awarded to University students who have made significant contributions to the public good (volunteer efforts which benefit the greater Lowell community, other communities, or other organizations) and thus have brought credit to themselves, the University and the larger community. Graduating students enrolled in graduate, undergraduate and online and continuing education programs are eligible.

The University of Massachusetts Lowell Hazing Policy is in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Student organizations and individual students found in violation of Massachusetts Hazing Laws will be subject to University Disciplinary Action.
