Nominations for excellence in developing the leadership skills of students are being accepted by the Lead365 Foundation.  A $500 cash prize will be awarded at the Lead365 National Conference held on November 2 – 4, 2017 to both an undergraduate and professional staff member or faculty, who have demonstrated an “enormous capacity for making a difference.”  The deadline for submitting nominations is October 1.  

There are many ways to make a difference.  Top consideration will be given to nominees who represent what it means to “explore, engage and evolve.”  On or off campus, these leaders inspire others to be agents of change, and their efforts have resulted in sustained visible and tangible change.   Whether an improved social condition, innovative program, community outreach effort, enhanced engagement or activism by others, or positive influence on those around them, what has happened would not have been possible if not for their leadership.

Award nomination forms can be completed on line at  For further information contact or call 508.864.4027.
