The “Outstanding Group Leader” is awarded to a student who has gone above and beyond their role in their student organization and demonstrates the University’s student development outcomes of responsibility, accountability, independence, interdependence, goal-orientation, self-awareness, resilience, appreciation of differences, and tolerance of ambiguity.
