“You become an Aggie Hero through your everyday actions and words. It’s about taking a mindful approach to what you do and say for the sake of your peers, your university community and humanity at large.” — Chancellor Gary S. May
Chancellor May invites you to nominate Aggie Heroes who meet the following criteria:
Aggie Heroes are current students, faculty or staff who are actively engaged with the UC Davis community.
An Aggie Hero is an individual or group that demonstrably goes above and beyond their studies, research or regular job in service to others.
He/She/They have given back to the community in a powerful way or helped others in a powerful way.
An Aggie Hero is an individual or group that inspires others to act because they’ve persevered and succeeded in the face of immense challenge.
If selected, the individual or group nominated is open to being publicly recognized for their service.
After a review process, those chosen to be Aggie Heroes will be celebrated on UC Davis social channels, invited to an event at the Chancellor’s Residence and held up as an example for Aggies to follow.
