Outstanding Student Leadership Award
The CANR Outstanding Student Leadership Award is open for student nominations from each department within the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR). CANR faculty, academic advisers or club advisers may submit nominations. Undergraduate students may not nominate each other.
The award is given each spring and CANR seniors graduating that spring, summer or the previous fall semester are eligible for the award.
Nominees for this award have shown service and leadership in college, department/school and university activities. By tradition, the winner of this award is asked to represent the graduating seniors as class speaker at the CANR undergraduate commencement ceremony.
If you have questions, contact Dr. Dorcia Chaison at firstname.lastname@example.org.
