Through the years of serving higher education,
Who's Who Among Students exists
as one of the most highly regarded and long-standing
honors programs in the nation, having earned the
over-whelming respect of college faculties and
administrations. For the students – the
outstanding campus leaders of the year –
national recognition by the Who's Who program
marks a pinnacle of scholastic achievement.
Selections to Who's Who Among Students
are made each fall. Campus nominating committees,
created to nominate the upper-classmen and graduate
students eligible for the program, are composed
of representatives from the faculty, administration
and student body.
This procedure of local nomination succeeds in
highlighting the individual and diverse service
to community and the university. These are the
young adults who enhance the positive image of
American youth through their contributions to
community and the university. Because curricular
and extracurricular programs at universities vary
greatly, each college is assigned a quota of nominees.
This quota is carefully calculated to ensure a
well-rounded representation of the student body.
All nominations must be endorsed by a college's
faculty or administration.
It should always be remembered that college students
are the reservoir from which our nation draws
its leadership strength. This feeling about American
students is the guiding principle behind the Who's
Who Among Students program.
Who's Who nominations for 2012-2013 will be collected during the fall 2012 semester. Nomination instructions will be emailed to all faculty and staff around fall break.
