Leadership Awards

You Make OHIO Strong

Each year, the divisions of Student Affairs and Diversity & Inclusion honor the outstanding leadership and community service work of students and student organizations across Ohio University. More than a dozen awards and scholarships are bestowed upon students for their hard work and commitment to the OHIO community.

This year’s theme recognizes students who demonstrated strength, adaptability and a capacity to build connections. Students who exhibited these characteristics amidst a challenging year made OHIO strong! 

The virtual ceremony for the Leadership Awards will be live Wednesday, April 14, at 6 p.m. EST.
