LEAD Recognition


Student Leader Spotlight

Nominate a student who has gone above and beyond in service and leadership to his/her respective organization and/or the SUNY Oneonta community.  Students, faculty, and staff are eligible to nominate students.  Self-nominations are also accepted.

Student Leader Spotlights recognize student leaders for their great contributions to the SUNY Oneonta campus.  After being notified of the honor by the Coordinator of Leadership Programs, the recipients are featured right here on the LEAD website and presented with a certificate of recognition.  Winners of this recognition will be chosen once per semester (around December 1 and May 1). Nominations will be collected on a rolling basis, so nominate someone today!

What have you learned by being a student leader? The most important aspect I have learned by being a student leader is the power of communication.  It is so important when working with a group that everyone is clear on what is being discussed and everyone has the opportunity to have their opinion be heard. 

What advice do you have for other student leaders? Don't be afraid to step into a high leadership role. When leading, say what you mean while still allowing others to tell you that you are wrong.
