Leaders of Distinction

In 2009, the Leaders of Distinction Awards were established. Each year we recognize outstanding achievement and leadership of students. Each recipient receives a keepsake presented at a reception at the end of the academic year. The staff in the Department of Student Engagement & Leadership, based on student contributions and exceptional academic standing, makes nominations.
