Outstanding Student Employee Award
On a regular basis, we select a student assistant to honor for his or her outstanding service to the Learning Assistance Center. We call this the "Above and Beyond" award because it was created to recognize student employees who exceed job requirements to offer excellent service to our diverse student population.
