A mo paw is a paw print with space to write a thank you note

What is a MoPaw?

A MoPaw stands for many things. It’s Moravian University’s way of recognizing extraordinary individuals in our community. It’s a simple way to say “Thank you” to people who have had a positive influence on your life, in ways both big and small. A MoPaw is a symbol of the values that make our campus so special.

What does the MoPaw mean to you? 

How do I give a MoPaw?

MoPaws are available at the HUB Desk, the Colonial Hall Welcome Desk and Human Resources Office, Bahnson Center, and Clewell Dining Hall. Once you have one, simply deliver it to your chosen recipient. You may want to write a brief message on your MoPaw to let the recipient know who it’s from—be creative!

What if I receive a MoPaw?

CELEBRATE! It means someone thinks highly of your deeds, actions, and/or character, and wants you to be recognized. During your time at Moravian University, you may receive multiple MoPaws. Display them with pride wherever you wish! And don’t forget to upload a picture of your achievement with the #MyMoPaw on social media.

We encourage you to celebrate your MoPaw, so that we can know how MoPaws are being used in our community!
