The quality of student life at the University of Idaho is greatly enhanced by the co-curricular opportunities ASUI Recognized Student Organizations (ASOs) and University Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs) provide each year. From cultural and spiritual events, to educational, social, or civic engagement initiatives, student-organized programs make an impact on our community in a variety of ways. In an effort to recognize and reward those student organizations that provide quality programs and events to the campus community, the ASUI Funding Board and the Department of Student Involvement established the Program of Excellence Award.
Two student organizations will receive $250. Nominations will be accepted by faculty, staff, students, or organization members.
Faculty advisors have been a part of students' extracurricular activities since the 1890s, when U of I administration encouraged the development of student organizations in order to discourage young men from frequenting local saloons.
Today, organization advisors still play a vital role in the lives of students. They give of themselves and their time to enhance co-curricular experiences of students. This award was created in recognition of the work student organization advisors do above and beyond professional responsibilities.
Each nominee must be a University of Idaho faculty or staff member who serves as advisor to a recognized student organization. People who have student organization advising responsibilities as part of their employment duties are not eligible.
