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.
