Oustanding Student Affairs Awards
Created in 2006, the Outstanding Student Affairs Award recognizes and encourages outstanding educational programs that engage students and have a positive impact on campus life. The SUNY Office of University Life oversees the program.
To earn the award, students develop initiatives designed to facilitate student learning and development in all aspects of campus life. Each year, the recipients of the Award present their programs to their peers so that other SUNY campuses may consider implementing the programs.
A selection committee comprised of Student Life representatives from campuses and SUNY System Administration reviewed the nominations in the five categories above, using the following criteria: clarity of program objectives; creativity and excellence of program design; effectiveness of program implementation; evidence of collaboration; and outcomes assessment establishing the effectiveness of the program.
