DEAN OF STUDENTS’ LEADERSHIP AWARDS
The Deans of Students’ Leadership Awards recognise leadership potential as well as extraordinary extramural contributions or achievements by students, and acknowledge that they have enriched the quality of life on the campus in some way. Receiving a Leadership Award is a special honour, and all students wishing to be considered for this honour must APPLY for it or be nominated, they must have a solid academic record1, and must fulfil the following criteria2:
1. The applicant must have served exceptionally well for at least one year3 in any THREE of the following areas during their time as a registered student:
- As an elected member of office on the SRC
- As an active committee member of a registered campus Sports Club (more than one sports code will be counted separately)
- As an active committee member of a registered SRC society (more than one society will be counted separately)
- As an active member of a Hall committee
- As an active member of a Residence House Committee
- As an active member of the Oppidan Committee
- As an active volunteer in Community Engagement
- As an exceptional achiever (at national or international level) in sport
- As a participant in >75% of inter-residence sporting events.
- As an exceptional achiever (at national or international level) in cultural activity
2. For each of the criteria listed above, a confidential letter of endorsement and support from the Officer-in-Charge (e.g. warden, Head of Sports Administration etc.) must accompany the application, which demonstrates that the student has indeed made an outstanding contribution.
3. If there is an additional way in which the student believes they have made an unusually positive contribution to overall quality of life on campus, or demonstrated their leadership capacity, they should submit the relevant documentation.
All applications must be submitted to the office of the Dean of Students. (Please use form available from the DoS Office, or download from the DoS Website ). A Committee comprising the Dean of Students, a Hall Warden, Head of Sports Admin and a CSD representative will decide on awards.
The Award ceremony will take place during Graduation 2010 in order to take November exam results/aegrotats into account and to allow students currently in their final year to attend.
1. “Solid academic record”: normally the student must be on track to complete the degree in the standard time, with no DP refusals
2. There will be a measure of flexibility in interpreting the criteria, and the applicant’s disciplinary record may be taken into account.
3. Subsequent terms of office (e.g. two successive years) will be counted separately.
