The Aspire! Awards recognize students and faculty and staff who exemplify the Student Affairs’ Aspirations for Student Learning. Five students, one representing each aspiration, and one faculty/staff member representing the featured aspiration are honored at each of the five Aspire! Awards breakfasts throughout the academic year.

Nominations are being accepted for the December 6th Aspire! Awards, featuring Self-Understanding and Integrity. Once a nomination is received, the different aspiration committees will review each submission and choose the individuals they believe best represent the essence of the aspiration.

“We are delighted to make these awards available to students, faculty, and staff,” said Vice President for Student Affairs Patty Perillo. “Our aspirations are about growing as a person, gaining a deeper learning through reflection, and a richer understanding of yourself, your values, and your purpose. The Aspire! Awards recognize amazing individuals who lean into and live in this way.”
