Recommend students for recognition at the 2016 Chancellor's Student Appreciation Brunch

by Michelle Saport  |   

2016 Chancellor's MLK Student Appreciation Brunch - Saturday, Jan. 30, 2016 Everybody makes a difference! Shine a light on a deserving student!

What is it? The Chancellor's Martin Luther King, Jr. Student Appreciation program is an annual event celebrating the many contributions of students who make a difference at UAA. It is an opportunity for the Chancellor to recognize the students you recommend and honor one of Dr. King's important messages: We, as individuals, can make a difference in the lives of others and in our communities.

Staff and faculty members recommend students who serve our campus community, both in the limelight as well as behind the scenes. Please honor those students by submitting their names for this recognition.

All recommended students and the staff or faculty who submit recommendations are invited to the brunch on Saturday, Jan. 30, 2016, at 11 a.m. in the Student Union. Our keynote speaker, Bree Newsome, is the community organizer and activist who removed the Confederate flag from the South Carolina State House in June 2015. Newsome will also present a public lecture that Saturday evening at 7 p.m. in the Fine Arts Building Recital Hall (ARTS 150).

This program is coordinated by Student Activities in conjunction with the Chancellor's Office.

Which students can be recommended? UAA has many students who give of themselves in ways that are often not recognized. This is your chance to acknowledge any student who has made a difference.

Who can recommend students? Any UAA staff or faculty member may recommend students. We request you limit recommendations to no more than three students.

How do you recommend your students? You can recommend up to three students who make a difference and can do so at the MLK Student Appreciation Luncheon website. The deadline for recommendations is Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2016.

The Chancellor looks forward to celebrating our students and Dr. King's legacy with you on Saturday, Jan. 30, 2016.
