President's Student Leadership and Service Awards

2nd Annual President’s Student Leadership and Service Awards

The CSUDH President’s Student Leadership and Service Awards are designed to recognize outstanding students (both graduate and undergraduate) and student organizations that have exemplified outstanding leadership and provided extraordinary services to California State University, Dominguez Hills and the surrounding community.

Many students and student organizations provide leadership and service to the California State University, Dominguez Hills community.  As such, we invite faculty and staff who work directly with deserving students and/or student organizations to nominate candidates who meet the awards criteria for the 2012 President’s Student Leadership and Service Awards.  We also encourage students to nominate advisors of student clubs or organizations for the Advisor of the Year Award. Individual student nominees must be full-time students in good academic standing.
