Senior Leadership Awards at Rose Hill

The Senior Leadership Awards Committee recognizes graduating seniors each year through the Senior Leadership Award and the Reverend Joseph P. Fitzpatrick Award.

The Awards

Senior Leadership Award
This recognition is awarded each year to six to eight seniors who exhibit the ability to lead, organize, empower and inspire fellow students. Each nominee should possess a high degree of commitment, creativity, innovation, initiative and integrity. As quality leadership is a way of conductive one's self and not merely possessing a title or position, candidates need not have held positions of high visibility.

Reverend Joseph P. Fitzpatrick Award
This recognition is awarded to one senior who exhibits a deep passion for and commitment to social justice and awareness within the Fordham community as well as within the Greater New York community. Reverend Fitzpatrick valued the importance of these characteristics and the recipient of this award must uphold and exemplify these traits. Such an award demands a comprehensive presence of social justice in the life of the student and living the Ignatian value of cura personalis.

Nominating students for the Senior Leadership Awards
Nominations should be no less than 200 words and highlight the main reasons that the student you are nominating is most deserving of a Senior Leadership Award or the Reverend Joseph P. Fitzpatrick, SJ Award. Nominations may be submitted by any member of the Fordham community (faculty, staff, students) and must be submitted online through the link below.

Nominees will be contacted and asked to submit a copy of their resume to be considered for an award.

Nominations for the Class of 2018 will open in March 2018.

Thank you for your continued support of our outstanding student leaders and your assistance in recognizing those who have served as leaders within our campus community.
