This special NASPA honor is presented to a college or university President/Chancellor in Region IV-East who has, over a sustained period of time, advanced the quality of student life on campus by supporting Student Affairs staff and initiatives. Nominees must show evidence of direct involvement in enhancing the quality of student life on campus, active attempts to involve students and student life staff in governing the institution, and demonstrable contributions to the profession with an impact beyond an individual campus.
Winners will be notified in October and the presentation of the awards will take place at the Region IV-East Conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Award winners should make every attempt to attend the Region IV-East Conference.
In addition to the regional recognition that accompanies this award, the recipient will also be considered for the National NASPA President's Award presented at NASPA's awards luncheon during the annual conference.
