The Graduate Student Leadership Award recognizes a graduate student that demonstrates leadership as evidenced in one or more of the following ways:

  • Leadership in the profession as it relates to the graduate program through evidence of dedication and success in their field of study.
  • Leadership in their graduate program demonstrated through active participation in and outside of the University classroom providing unique contributions in the program.
  • Leadership through research as demonstrated by innovative research that advances or contributes to the discipline.

A recipient for the Graduate Student Leadership Award is chosen twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring. The recipient is recognized at the fall and spring commencement ceremonies.

Faculty and graduate program chairs can nominate a candidate for the award or students can submit a self-nomination. Communication about the nomination process will be sent out to faculty and students in November for the fall award and in March for the spring award.
