Emerging & Collaborative Leader Awards

The Emerging & Collaborative Leader Awards were developed during the 2015-2016 academic year to re-focus and reframe the Movers & Shakers Award Program.

The Emerging Leader Award is open to no more than 15 first-year students and the Collaborative Leader Awards are open to no more than 35 sophomores, juniors, seniors & graduate students.

Successful nominees for both the Emerging Leader and Collaborative Leader Awards should exhibit many of the following qualities of a collaborative leader:

  • Inspires others
  • Includes others in decision-making
  • Is willing to take risks
  • Works inclusively
  • Celebrates diversity
  • Values collaboration and shared-effort
  • Is a consensus builder

In addition to being viewed as collaborative leaders, nominated students must have earned a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher in order to be eligible for this award.  Students may recieve the Collaborative Leader Award multiple times during their UNH career as long as the student is nominated for a unique endeavor each time.

Nominations are now open on Wildcat Link and will run until 9am on Monday, April 25 @ 9am.  Please note you will need to be logged into Wildcat Link using your UNH IT ID in order to complete this form.  You may have to log in and click the link again.
