Academic Achievement Award
To recognize the student organization whose membership demonstrates exceptional contributions to the academic environment of UAF.
Community Service Award
To recognize a student organization that provides meaningful and outstanding volunteer service to the UAF and Fairbanks communities. Single projects will not be judged any differently from semester-long or year-long projects or a compilation of a number of projects.
Diversity Enrichment Award
To recognize a student organization that has demonstrated a significant commitment to enhance diversity on campus through efforts to promote a campus climate that respects and appreciates individual and cultural differences. Groups will be evaluated primarily on their educational outreach efforts. Groups can address any of the following elements of diversity: culture, race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, sex, age, and economic status.
Exceptional Event Award
To recognize the student organization which has significantly impacted campus life through the successful planning and implementation of a single event or event series. Single one-time events will not be judged any differently from semester-long or year-long event series.
To recognize a group that has established a sustainable and growing legacy through strong organizational leadership in the midst of membership turnover and officer transition.
Outstanding Advisor Award
To recognize the advisor who most successfully assists her/his student organization in reaching its goals and who is fully supportive of the group’s stated purpose and function. Outstanding advisors demonstrate an effort to go above and beyond their stated positions, and through their involvement have become not only advisors but mentors and partners to the group members and are vital to the overall success of the organization.
Rookie of the Year Award
To recognize a group that was newly founded or re-established after three years of inactivity during the 2010-2011 school year. The student organization should demonstrate substantial progress and success in their first year of establishment.

The authorized use of university space by an organization does not imply endorsement by the university of the organization, or its views, goals or objectives. Rather, it reflects the university's commitment to a campus environment supportive of free expression through reasoned discourse, or, in some cases, merely a rental of space at standard rates.
