UTEP Student Leadership Awards – Leadership development, academic achievement, and service to the community are key elements for success on a university campus. Students who excel in these areas deserve to be recognized for their achievements. The Student Engagement & Leadership Center (SELC) and the Student Government Association (SGA) host the annual “UTEP Student Leadership Awards.” The program is designed to celebrate and pay tribute to the many contributions student leaders and recognized student organizations have made to the community throughout the academic year. The program includes three different award categories (Men & Women of Mines, Who’s Who In American Colleges & Universities, Registered Student Organization Awards) and special recognition for elected leaders of the Student Government Association. Recipients for awards are selected by small groups of faculty, staff, and students. This program will be held on Saturday, April 30, 2016.
