Each nomination packet should include two (but no more than five) letters of support from colleagues in addition to your formal nomination letter. The packet should also include the nominee's resume.

This award is presented to an individual or organization that has provided dedicated service, consistent advocacy, and outstanding leadership to the higher education community on the national or international level. The honoree will have made a meaningful and appreciable contribution to the issues and concerns affecting higher education. Nominations for this award may be solicited from the NASPA Board of Directors.

The winner of this category will also be forwarded to the NASPA national office for consideration for recognition at the national level.
