The Division of Student Affairs works with students in different capacities.  In addition to the programs, services, and activities developed by the offices within the division to support student success, the Division also honors graduating students who have excelled in academic achievement as well as those who have contributed their service in volunteer leadership positions on campus and in the community.  These students are nominated and selected by a committee each semester as the Dean of Students Honor Recipients.

Dean of Students Honor Recipients Program

Graduating students who have excelled in both academic achievement and service may be nominated as a Dean of Students Honor Recipient.  This program recognizes the exceptional students who maintain high scholastic performance while actively participating in University and community leadership and service activities outside of the classroom.

Nominations are now open for Fall 2021 graduates.  If you know a student graduating this semester who has at least a 3.25 cumulative GPA and is deserving of this honor, please submit the Honor Recipient Nomination Form by Friday, 22 October 2021 at 5pm by email.  Please note that the student you nominate will need to provide a current resume and a personal statement reflecting on the volunteer service they have contributed to the university and/or community.  Please call 816-235-6190 if you have a question about whether a particular student is eligible.
