This would be a great way to acknowledge contributions of individuals in your institution who have been (student) innovators in creation of ETDs (electronic theses and dissertation) or who have led campus efforts in development of ETD programs.
I am on the board of the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD) and CNI has long supported their work.
