The ASU Office of University Ceremonies invites ASU faculty and staff, or representatives of a community service organization, to nominate a graduating ASU student for this year’s Jose A. Ronstadt Outstanding Undergraduate Award and/or the Ed Pastor Outstanding Graduate Student Award.

Award recipients will be recognized during the Hispanic Convocation ceremony.
