We have much to celebrate in our division, and we all know many people who are making great contributions to student learning and student development. The SAUP Awards and Recognition Team (ART) has developed three distinctive awards to recognize contributions and celebrate our values and victories.

Submit a nomination form:

The Student Affairs Values Award
This award recognizes at least two staff members who demonstrate a commitment to the core values (academic quality, community, diversity, excellence, integrity, and student focus) in an exemplary manner. This award will be given for outstanding demonstration of two or more of the core values.

The Student Affairs Program of the Year Award
This award is given to a department that experienced large growth and/or demonstrated improvement in a pre-existing program or created an outstanding new program.

The Student Affairs Together We Stand Award
This award recognizes effective campus partnerships between a Student Affairs department and another JMU individual or group outside of the division. The individuals/groups from within and beyond the division will share this award.

The Student Affairs Assessment Award
This award recognizes an individual who has excelled in facilitating growth of an aspect of the assessment cycle for a Student Affairs program, assumes a leadership role in assessment, demonstrates a commitment to advancing assessment practices at JMU, or facilitates assessment work that has a tangible effect on others, the division, or the university.
