Accepting Nominations Now through March 8, 2020

The University of Illinois Springfield Alumni Board (UIS Alumni Board) has the privilege of honoring exceptional graduating students for their volunteer contributions as leaders of student societies, groups and organizations at UIS. The UIS Alumni Board sponsors this recognition program and would appreciate your assistance in identifying deserving individuals on campus.

Nominees are undergraduate, graduate or doctoral students who received their degrees in summer or fall of 2019, or who are candidates for graduation in May 2020. Nominees should have demonstrated exceptional leadership through their involvement in campus and/or student organizations.

Leadership may be exemplified through an officer or chair position, or outstanding loyalty and commitment by a person whose actions inspire others. The leadership that is recognized can span an entire academic career or be more limited in scope.

Recipients will be honored at a program in Spring 2020.

Please submit nominations online by Sunday, March 8, 2020.
