Extraordinary Campus Leadership & Service Award

This award is given to graduate and undergraduate students for contributions to the university community through leadership and service. For more information, please contact

Winners are selected through a two-step process: nomination from a faculty/staff member or peer and an application submitted by the applicant. The selection committee relies heavily on the information received through both of these processes.

The nomination form will ask for general contact information about the student and a reference letter outlining why this student is deserving of the award. Nominations are due on December 1. Soon after, all nominees will be emailed and encouraged to complete their application. Nominees who do not submit an application will not be considered for the award.

As part of the application, students will be expected to answer three short answer questions and submit the following:

  • Resume
  • A detailed description of participation and leadership in all activities from freshman through senior year (use template provided)
  • Two letters of reference from individuals other than the nominator
  • A current individual photograph for publication purposes (no snapshots—photos will not be shared or used in award deliberations)
