A TLU Center For Servant Leadership Event
Celebrating Our Service
Each year, TLU honors individuals, organizations, courses, and groups who exemplify service in the following categories: Outstanding Community Partner, Outstanding Civic Engagement Course, Outstanding Co-Curricular Service Project, and Servant Leader of the Year. Nominations are due March 24, 2021 and can be submitted using the form below (each nomination requires its own submission). Award recipients will be announced on April 23, 2021 via a Zoom event.
Which Category Should I Choose?
Outstanding Community Partner
An award recognizing a nonprofit in the Seguin community that has demonstrated an exemplary partnership with TLU over the past year. This partnership could include working with a faculty member on developing a course, mentoring a TLU student through their service at the agency, or striving to build bridges between the TLU and Seguin communities. The Center for Servant Leadership chooses to highlight a community partner each year that goes above and beyond their normal duties to cultivate a relationship with TLU.
Outstanding Civic Engagement Course
An award recognizing a fall or spring course from this academic year that incorporates civic engagement through an ongoing partnership with a community agency. Past recipients of this award have used creativity, technology and research to incorporate service into their classrooms. The Center for Servant Leadership chooses to highlight a course that can serve as a model for civic engagement in a curricular setting.
Outstanding Co-Curricular Service Project
An award recognizing a fall or spring co-curricular, non-academic experience from this academic year that facilitates an ongoing partnership with a community agency. Past recipients of this award have been modules, student organizations, athletic teams, or other outside-of-the-classroom experiences that have excelled at promoting community involvement. The Center for Servant Leadership chooses to highlight a co-curricular project that can demonstrate the variety of community service opportunities that exist on TLU's campus.
Servant Leader Of The Year
An award recognizing individual accomplishments in the realm of civic engagement. Servant Leaders embody the philosophies of the Center for Servant Leadership, acknowledging that positive, sustainable change happens through building mutually-beneficial relationships with others. We recognize that servant leadership can take place outside of the context of traditional direct service, but can happen in other relationships as well. The Center for Servant Leadership chooses to highlight four individuals in this category each year: Staff, Faculty, Student, and Community.
