LIVE WELL Student Leadership Award

We recognize excellence.

Our LIVE WELL Student Leadership Award program was designed to honor outstanding student achievement within the College of Nursing. The program is designed to highlight students who best exemplify LIVE WELL and who create a positive impact on their community.

A college-led committee will select one winner each month based on nominations. Monthly winners will be recognized throughout the college and be eligible for the Outstanding Leadership scholarship. Nominators must submit a short survey explaining why the student is deserving of this award. College faculty, staff and students can nominate a student for outstanding leadership.

Nominees’ leadership and engagement must exemplify at least one characteristic of LIVE WELL. At the end of the year, a banquet will be held with Dean Melnyk to celebrate all monthly winners and a $500 Outstanding Leadership scholarship will be awarded. All nominees and nominators will be invited.

We encourage the entire College of Nursing community to nominate deserving students and join together to appreciate our student leaders.

The deadline to nominate a December winner is Friday, November 29.
