The Selfless Labor Award

The Selfless Labor Award is given to an individual who exemplifies the spirit of volunteerism, over an extended period of time, advancing the school's mission. Individuals embody the spirit and ideals of the institution. Service must be in a volunteer capacity. The Award is named after the Selfless Labor sculpture, pictured above, which was created by the late Dean Arcangelo Cascieri and depicts a series of worker bees working on behalf of the colony around a beehive. It is awarded during the spring Cascieri Lectureship in the Humanities reception.
