Denise Nicoletti Board of Trustees’ Award for Service to Community
In 2003, the WPI Trustees, in honor of Professor Denise Nicoletti, established the Denise Nicoletti Trustees' Award for Service to Community. The award is presented annually to a WPI staff member or faculty member who exemplifies the spirit of service to community which Professor Nicoletti so superbly exemplified in her life and her career. The award consists of an engraved plaque and a cash stipend of $1,500.
Nominators are encouraged to submit additional letters of support to help the Committee better assess the nominees.
