Purdue University receives 2018 ACI Outstanding University Award for student activities
The American Concrete Institute has named Purdue University with the ACI Award for University Student Activities.
The award uses a points system based on participation in concrete related activities and programs to reward academic institutions. Universities that have earned 12 or more points are recognized as Excellent and those with six to eleven points achieve Outstanding status.
Points can be earned for the number of students with ACI membership, participation in regional and national concrete competitions, ACI Convention and Committee attendance, community service, student chapter activities, and hosting campus meetings and events.
Submissions for this year’s award program increased by 70% from 2017. Thirty-five universities were designated as Excellent and eighty as Outstanding for the year 2018. Awardees will receive an electronic banner to display on social media and a physical banner to display on campus. Applications for the 2019 program will be due January 31, 2020.
