Senior Leadership Awards at Lincoln Center
Each year, Student Affairs honors the contributions of the undergraduate senior class by awarding Senior Leadership Awards. The awards dinner for the Class of 2019 for Fordham College at Lincoln Center and the Gabelli School of Business at Lincoln Center will be on Tuesday, April 23 at 5 pm. Award nominees will receive an invitation to attend the dinner.
Nominations should be no less than 200 words and highlight the main reasons that the student you are nominating is most deserving of an award. Nominations may be submitted by any member of the Fordham community (faculty, staff, students) and must be submitted online. Nominees must have an expected graduation date of February 2019, May 2019, or August 2019.
Nominees will be contacted and asked to submit a copy of their resume to be considered for an award.
Nominations closed Friday, March 1.
Senior Leadership Award
Nominees should have exhibited the ability to lead, organize, empower, and inspire fellow students in our overall efforts to create a welcoming, involved, and inclusive community. Each should possess a high degree of commitment, creativity, innovation, initiative and integrity. As quality leadership is a way of conducting one's self and not merely possession of a title or position, candidates need not have held positions of high visibility.
The Alumni Award is presented to a senior who has attended Fordham College at Lincoln Center or the Gabelli School of Business at Lincoln Center throughout the student's undergraduate career, whose record of co-curricular achievement for Lincoln Center and the greater Fordham community is outstanding and whose academic record is commendable. The Alumni Award is the highest of the Senior Leadership Awards.
The Journalism Award will be given to the senior who has made an outstanding contribution to a Fordham LC student publication in the field of publishing, editing, writing or graphic arts.
St. Alberto Hurtado, SJ Mission, Faith and Justice Award
This award is given to the senior who has exhibited excellence and leadership in exemplifying Fordham's Jesuit mission by living a life of faith that does justice.

This student has shown enthusiasm, dedication, and compassion when working with others, especially those who are marginalized, disadvantaged, or underprivileged and encourages others to do the same. This student promotes the causes of social justice and spiritual growth in the larger community and securing positive change in the world.
