Graduating Student Leadership Award

The UNB Saint John Graduating Student Leadership Awards recognize students who have made outstanding voluntary extracurricular contributions to their academic program/department, or to UNB Saint John as a whole.

Nomination process

Students who meet the following selection criteria can nominate themselves for this award or be nominated by a member of the UNB Saint John community including students, faculty, staff or alumni. The nomination form must be submitted along with a current resume, and contribution transcript, if available; transcript is not necessary.

Nominators must obtain the consent of the student by having the student sign the nomination form.

Selection criteria

  • Only students who are graduating in spring or fall of the award year are eligible;
  • Recipients must currently be actively enrolled at UNB Saint John in either a full-time or part-time degree program and be in good academic standing at the time of nomination;
  • Students have made voluntary extracurricular contributions to their academic program/department, or to UNB Saint John as a whole;
  • The student's voluntary contribution(s) may take the form of any one, or a combination, of the following: leadership on committees, or influence on student or university affairs; improvement in the quality of life of students; encouragement of fellow students to become involved in extracurricular activities; and contribution to the sense of community at UNB Saint John.

Leadership and involvement should be considered in relation to good academic standing. The value of the student's contribution, rather than an office held, should be the major criterion considered. See full selection guidelines.
