We gather each spring to recognize outstanding students, advisors, and organizations for their work and efforts over the past year.

The Hawkeye Student Organization Leadership & Service Awards nominations and applications are available each year to the over 500 organizations on campus. A team of volunteers read and judge all nominations.

Award Recipients

Due to COVID-19, there was not an in-person award ceremony in 2021 as in years past; however, it is a priority to recognize the outstanding work and successes our student organizations and leaders have made on campus. Student Video Productions, along with Student Life Communications, has helped us created the 2020-2021 Hawkeye Student Organizations Leadership & Service Awards in a virtual environment.
