About the Awards

The Student Life and Leadership Awards program was established to honor students, student organizations, and University professionals who support the intellectual, professional, personal, social, and cultural needs of the community.  Specifically, we seek to honor those persons and groups who successfully facilitate the following tasks within the community:

  • Advocate for full participation by all as equal partners in the community of scholars.

  • Recognize the uniqueness of students.
