Awards and Special Recognition

Each year, students and student organizations help others, compete successfully, create new opportunities for learning, and help students learn valuable skills. Recognition of these accomplishments is important! Leadership skills, Recruitment of new members, backing of campus faculty and staff, and continued growth are all supported by the recognition that comes from Campus Awards. Career & Leadership Development maintains several ways in which you, your organization, its advisors, and its members can be recognized across campus!

UW-Whitewater and Career & Leadership Development sponsor an annual celebration of students, staff, and student organizations. Applications for these awards, many of which include monetary prizes, are open in December and close in March. Applications can be found on connect early Spring Semester. See a list of the awards recognized at the annual ceremony held in May here.

Each year, student organizations at UW-Whitewater are eligible to participate in the Organizations of Excellence program. Groups are asked to complete a number of tasks (many of which are part of the normal cycle of an organization’s year – completing recognition process on time, participating in the Involvement Fair, etc.). Organizations achieving that recognition are eligible for perks like free copies, recognition at Campus Awards, key table placement at Involvement Fairs, and more!
