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.

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 and can nominate multiple students each month. Nominees’ leadership and engagement must exemplify at least one characteristic of LIVE WELL.

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. The Outstanding Leadership scholarship is a $500 scholarship given to one of the monthly winners at the end of the academic year.

We encourage the entire College of Nursing community to nominate deserving students and join together to appreciate our student leaders. The first of every month nominations will close for that month’s winner. Our first winner for the academic year will be selected in September.

If you have any questions about the program please contact Gina Taff (

Andriy Androshchuk

November Award Winner

Andriy Androshchuk (he/him/his), an RN to BSN Student, is the November winner for the LIVE WELL Student Leadership award. As shared by his nominator, “He is an innovative, wellness-focused lifelong learner. Andriy participates weekly in the class activities for all nine dimensions of wellness. As I read his wellness activities, I am grateful for his perspective and contribution to both his own health and resources for others. A unique resource that Andriy shared is how he could further environmental wellness. For four years he has flown back to his country to plant a variety of trees on land that is no longer used to aid in a new ecosystem and support for wildlife. During the pandemic, he maintains this support by donating to an organization that plants trees worldwide. When reading his wellness entries, I was very proud to know this student and the difference he is making.”
