Applauding Excellence in Leadership

Recognizing Exemplary Seniors

Who are the graduating seniors who have a healthy disregard for the impossible? Who are principled in their interactions with others and use their core values to guide their efforts, both personally and professionally? And who has made a meaningful contribution to NIU, the broader community, and society? These are the individuals we seek to recognize (along with their families) at Applauding Excellence in Leadership: A Recognition Breakfast for Graduating Seniors.

This event is hosted by Vice President of Student Affairs & Enrollment Management, Dr. Eric Weldy, on Commencement Saturday, May 10, 2014 at 7:00 a.m., in the Altgeld Hall Auditorium, this event will serve as a great opportunity to celebrate students’ leadership contributions. These exemplary students will receive a Leadership Medallion to wear with their cap and gown at Commencement. Honorees will be notified the week of April 1, 2014.

Current faculty and staff are able to nominate a graduating senior by completing the Applauding Excellence in Leadership Nomination Form. The deadline to receive nominations is Monday, March 24, 2014.
