Recognized Student Organization (RSO) Celebration and Awards

SJSU Student Leadership Gala

Celebrating Student Leaders

It's that time of year again! Student Organization Awards are open and now accepting nominations! Student Organization Awards honor outstanding students, faculty/staff and alumni members who make an impact upon your organization!

Each year, Student Involvement, Associated Students and the Solidarity Network (MOSAIC Cross Cultural Center, Student Health Center Wellness & Health Promotion, A.S. Cesar E. Chavez Community Action Center, Pride Center, and Gender Equity Center) come together to celebrate student leadership on a campus­-wide scale.

This year's event will be held on Thursday, May 12, 2016 at 6:00 pm in the Student Union Ballroom!

Can you think of that one person who makes your organization better just by being a part of it? Bring recognition and pride to your organization and nominate your best leaders today for this year's awards! There are fifteen different awards that you can nominate for, but make sure to submit your nominations by March 25th, 2016!
