Student Affairs Awards
The Student Affairs Awards Ceremony
The Division of Student Affairs has the privilege of working with some of the most engaged students, faculty, and staff members at Kennesaw State University. In 2016, the Division created the Student Affairs Awards Ceremony to honor their outstanding achievements and recognize exemplary commitment to Kennesaw State University.
The Student Affairs mission states, “our students will achieve success through practical application of knowledge by becoming engaged ethical leaders who serve their local and global communities.” The ceremony is the embodiment of that practical application and provides an opportunity to applaud the success of many individuals and programs.
Below is a list of the awards with a link to the nomination form for each award. We encourage you to submit nominations from across campus to recognize the outstanding work of our students, student organization advisors, student organizations, and assessment initiatives.
