The Mother Ursula Award, given in honor of our founding President, was begun in 1968 to honor a senior student and is the only award given to a student that is voted on by his/her peers.
Honoring a senior who, in the opinion of his or her classmates, has best fulfilled the ideals of the College through academic achievement, participation in extracurricular activities, leadership, and service to fellow classmates and Cabrini College.
Nominations for the Mother Ursula Award are taken from students, faculty, and staff of Cabrini College.
There can be up to ten (10) nominees; all names will be vetted by the President and vice presidents of Academic Affairs Vice and Student Life.
Voting takes place during Commencement Kick-Off via ballot. All current senior students may vote once for their choice of recipient.
The Mother Ursula Award winner will be announced at the Senior Class Dinner by either the President of the Alumni Association and/or the previous year’s recipient.
The award is officially presented at Commencement, with a plaque and award of $500, by the President of the Alumni Association.
