ARTICLE XI. University Medal*

The University Medal is Case Western Reserve University's highest honor in recognition of leadership, dedication, and service to the University, to higher education, and to society. The University's Board of Trustees established the medal in 1971. It honors persons for a variety of reasons and has usually been awarded to a person very close to or a part of the university "family." A committee of university faculty, trustees, and the president select the recipient. The sterling silver medal bears the university seal on one side and the recipient's name and the date the medal is awarded on the other.
