Student Recognition

Student Recognition at IU South Bend comes in many forms. Our two pinnicale activities are the Student Leadership Recognition Awards during the spring and the Who's Who program.

Leadership Recognition Program

The Office of Student Life and the Student Government Association give out annual awards. These awards are:

Club Advisor of the Year
Educator of the Year
Administrator of the Year
Student Leader of the Year
Outstanding Senior Leader
Student Organization of the Year
SGA Member of the Year
Mike Wargo Distinguished Alumni Award

Each spring semester the SGA accepts nominations for those awards. Information for the 2012 Awards process is coming soon.

Who's Who at IU South Bend

The Office of Student Life coordinates the IU South Bend nomination and selection process for the annual recognition of the “Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges” program. For seventy years, this national program has annually honored outstanding campus leaders for their community and scholastic achievements.

Nominations Process for 2011-2012 is coming.

To be eligible for nomination, students must be currently enrolled at IU South Bend as either a junior, senior, or graduate student in a degree-seeking undergraduate or graduate program. Nominations must be completed by IU South Bend faculty or staff members and include the student’s full legal name, address, university ID number, year in school, cumulative GPA, major, and campus/community involvement. Also, please briefly state the strengths of the nominee that led to his/her selection. Nominated students will be contacted to verify and provide additional information.

Consideration for nominations should not be based solely on scholastic achievement, but should also take into account participation and leadership in co- and extracurricular activities, citizenship, service to IU South Bend, and potential for future achievement. Nominees will be considered for inclusion based on GPA and significant campus and community involvement.

The nomination process happens each academic year during the spring semester. If you have questions/concerns about this progress and/or program, please contact Sam Centellas at (574) 520-4587 or at
