The Distinguished Service Awards were established in 1981 by the Faculty Council and since 1984 have been sponsored by the late John S. Perkins, who served the University for more than 50 years in various capacities, as a faculty member, a member of the administration, a trustee, and treasurer. These awards, presented annually by the council to three members of the Boston University family, are in recognition of distinguished service to the University. They carry a prize of $500 and a plaque recognizing the service of the recipient to Boston University.

Eligible are all associated with Boston University (administration, alumni, benefactor, staff, students, trustees, and others) except for members of the faculty, who through their elected representatives will be presenting these awards to those who have served the University with great distinction and have made important contributions toward the goals of Boston University.

The awards will be presented in a special ceremony this spring. The deadline for nominations is Friday, February 27. For the nomination form, click here.
