Student Leader Spotlight

The Office of Student Leadership and Community Engagement seeks to recognize Samford students for their outstanding contributions to campus and community through the Student Leader Spotlight program.

Students, faculty, and staff are invited to nominate student leaders by submitting the form available here.  Nominations will be accepted on a rolling basis and a committee will select 1-2 students for each month's Spotlight.  Nominations must be submitted by the end of the month to be considered for recognition the following month.  For example, nominations submitted by February 28th will be considered for March's Spotlight.

Please note: Nominated students are NOT required to hold "official" leadership positions.  The purpose of the Spotlight is to recognize students who may not receive recognition otherwise.  The committee is looking for students who have recently demonstrated outstanding leadership on campus or in the community.  Depth and intentionality of leadership, as well as uniqueness of the student's contribution, will be considered when selecting Spotlight recipients.
