Since its beginning, the Finkbine Dinner has recognized the importance and value of learning, leadership, and loyalty at The University of Iowa. With the introduction of the first Hancher-Finkbine medallion, awarded to Dennis L. Pauling in 1966, a new tradition was born in recognizing individuals that best exemplify those qualities. Over time, multiple awards have been added to best recognize the diverse community of students, staff, faculty and alums at the University of Iowa.
