Student Awards: Student Awards

In order to recognize our students for their academic performance, leadership, and social change contribution, we are launching the Academic Performance and Citizenship Award and the Leadership Excellence Award to be presented biannually during graduation weekend.  A winner from each college will be selected for both awards.  Then an overall winner will be selected from the college winners for both awards.  Those two winners will be invited to a special awards ceremony during graduation weekend.  This is the inaugural year for both awards.
