The committee convener is an Office of Student Life staff member.
Format: The committee will meet to learn the responsibilities of committee members and to review the process for evaluating candidates. The members are given two to three weeks to review the nomination materials and rate the candidates. At the end of the review period the committee is convened to decide on the recipients. The decisions are usually made over the course of two or three meetings or however many meetings are required to complete the process.
Other Responsibilities: Committee members are an important part of the process and are invited to participate in the University Leadership Awards Program. Often members assist with the program by greeting guests, reading citations, assisting with the presentation of the Awards or ushering. Members are requested to serve two semesters in order to provide continuity in the selection process.
