The Triangle Award

The Triangle Award annually recognizes three to five graduating seniors who exemplify excellence in the following categories:

  • Character

    • IWU Community members recognize the awardee as a person of Christ-like character demonstrating the fruit of the Spirit.

  • Scholarship

    • IWU Community members recognize the awardee as having contributed exemplary work in application or research in their field.

  • Leadership

    • IWU Community members recognize the awardee as an honorable leader within their realms of influence.

This is a significant and prestigious award that honors graduating seniors who have fully grasped and lived out the Indiana Wesleyan University Mission to change the world. Each student was awarded a glass trophy presented by one of his or her professors.

Triangle Award recipients are selected based on nominations submitted by IWU faculty and staff. Nominated students are then solicited for three references. After reviewing comments from references as well as advisers, resident directors, and athletic coaches, a sub-committee of the Student Life Council selects the top three to five nominees.
