Leadership Awards

The University of Tampa recognizes outstanding individuals and student organizations at its annual Leadership Awards Night.

Student Leader of the Month

The University of Tampa recognizes one undergraduate student for demonstrating exemplary leadership traits during each month of the academic year. Students, faculty and staff from within the UT community and contacts off campus (e.g., employers, internship supervisors, non-profit agencies, etc.) are encouraged to nominate a student for this monthly award. To nominate a student, please visit the online Student Leader of the Month nomination form. For more information, contact spartanleadership@ut.edu.

Student organizations, individual students, faculty and staff are encouraged to nominate one another for these annual awards. Leadership Awards Night 2014 is scheduled for Tuesday, April 15, on the 9th Floor of the Vaughn Center. For more information, contact spartanleadership@ut.edu.
