posted on Feb. 5: Nominations open for 2002 President’s Award of Excellence – Student Leadership


Nominations are now being accepted for the President's Award of Excellence – Student Leadership.

Nomination forms – the deadline is Feb. 22 – are available from the
Office of the Associate Vice-President (Student Affairs), Gilmour Hall, Room 207.

The President's Award of Excellence was established in 1993 to recognize in-course students in their graduating year who have demonstrated a commitment to the University's belief in excellence in its student body.

The selection committee may present up to three awards annually. Each award will be a President's Student Medal of Excellence and the recipient will have his/her name inscribed on a commemorative plaque displayed permanently in the McMaster University Student Centre.

This award acknowledges the contributions made by students who play a significant role in improving and developing the intellectual, social, cultural and/or athletic fabric of the McMaster community.

The selection committee will consider those nominees who have demonstrated outstanding student leadership qualities.

The award will be presented on the basis of how the nominees' achievements have contributed to the betterment of the University community and to the advantage of the students who attend McMaster. The overall quality of the contribution rather than the achievement of a certain status or position will be the determining factor for the committee to arrive at a final decision.

In addition, the individuals selected to receive an award may also have extensive involvement in the local, provincial, or national communities.
