Seawolf Student Leader Award
Actively engaging students in intentionally designed and meaningful student leadership experiences is a fundamental purpose of UAA's Division of Student Development. Student leadership experiences benefit students, the university, and society in many ways. Students engaged in these experiences develop strong leadership skills for life, have a deeper understanding of inter-personal dynamics, and experience more positive personal growth and development. Quality student leadership experiences contribute to UAA's overall learning environment, increase student retention, engage students in university decision-making and policy development; enhance student, faculty, and staff recruitment efforts, and create loyal alumni.
The Seawolf Student Leader Award recognizes student leaders who, through their leadership, involvement, and commitment made significant contributions to campus life. Students are recognized for leadership contributions that go above and beyond the norm, while sustaining quality academic performance.
Award recipients receive up to $1500 in tuition credit for the semester following the semester that award was received. Recipients also receive a Seawolf lapel pin and certificate of recognition.
Community service activities must enhance the university and Anchorage communities while making a connection to the education mission at UAA. The applicant’s involvement must enhance and promote individual and collective growth of students.
The Seawolf Community Service Award Advisory Committee is appointed by the Dean of Students and composed of two faculty/staff members and two students not applying for the award. After eligibility has been verified, the advisory committee evaluates application materials based on accuracy and thoroughness of application materials, service projects, breath of participation, and significance of contributions to the community.
