Award Criteria:

  • Completion of Bachelor's Degree in the current academic year
  • Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0

The Dean of Students Office works in conjunction with collegues in Student Affairs to select the student who receives this honor. The student selected is then considered for the President's Outstanding Graduate Award, the highest award bestowed on a student graduating from the university.

Congratulations to Miranda Ford, recipient of the 2017 Dean of Students Award for Outstanding Leadership! Miranda plans to pursue a teaching credential with the goal of teaching STEM Courses.
