Auburn University has been named as one of only 25 American Concrete Institute Excellent Universities for 2018. This is the fourth year in a row Auburn receives the top honor.

The ACI award for university student activities was initiated to recognize universities that have participated in ACI-related programs.

The award also identifies institutions across the globe that qualify for excellent status, based on points received for their participation in ACI-related activities, events and programs.

“Our ACI student chapter has excelled in developing unique opportunities for Auburn students,” said Andrzej S. Nowak, chair of the civil engineering department. “We are extremely proud of the deserving recognition given to the ACI student chapter and their consistent excellence.”

The award uses a points system based on participation in concrete related activities and programs to reward academic institutions. Universities that have earned 12 or more points are recognized as excellent and those with six to eleven points achieve “outstanding status.”

Points can be earned for the number of students with ACI membership, participation in regional and national concrete competitions, ACI Convention and Committee attendance, community service, student chapter activities, and hosting campus meetings and events.

Submissions for this year’s award program increased by 70 percent.
