Excellence in Leadership Awards recognize students and campus groups

Undergraduate student leaders and student groups who actively demonstrate exemplary leadership, service and commitment to the campus community were recognized during the Excellence in Leadership Awards ceremony, held May 1 in Holmes Lounge, Ridgley Hall.

The Office of Student Involvement and Leadership organized the event.

Washington University community members nominate student leaders or student groups believed to exemplify excellence in leadership. A student group also can apply directly for an award.

Those recognized for Excellence in Leadership have gone above and beyond the expectations of the campus community; consistently proven to be exemplary amongst the campus community in all aspects of their campus involvement; fostered positive relationships with campus resources/departments and other student organizations; and intentionally pursued the organizations’ ideals through the attainment of established goals and continual reflection and development.
