CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – The University of Northern Iowa will host the Student Leadership Awards at 7 p.m., Tuesday, April 11, in the Old Central Ballroom of the Maucker Union on the UNI campus. The ceremony recognizes outstanding student leadership through a series of awards presented to students and student organizations.

Several awards are presented in various categories, including three awards from the Office of the Dean of Students: the Lux Service Award, Outstanding Student Leader Award and Servant Leadership Award. The Lux Service Award is the most prestigious award given to graduating senior students to acknowledge their outstanding involvement and lasting legacy. The Outstanding Student Leader Award recognizes students that have demonstrated dedication and leadership in one or more campus activities. The Servant Leadership Award is presented to students who strive to serve others before themselves and promote the common good.

Other awards include the UNI CARE (Creating a Responsible Environment) Award, Northern Iowa Student Government Above and Beyond Awards, Student Organization Awards, Drake Martin Gold Star Awards, Student Employee of the Year, Dr. Sue Follon Scholarship for Women in Leadership and Dr. Charlotte West Scholar-Athlete Award.

Recipients of Student Leadership Awards were chosen from nominated students or student organizations throughout January and February. For more information, contact Steffoni Schmidt, associate director of Student Life and Event Services, at 319-273-7422 or steffoni.schmidt@uni.edu.
