Recognition and Awards

In order to recognize exemplary UAF student leaders, the Graduation with Leadership Honors distinction is awarded each semester. As leaders among their peers, these students are commended for their service, commitment, and achievements, which positively contribute to the quality of life in the UAF community.

Students earn graduation with leadership honors by completing level I & II of the COLD certificate.  By completing levels I, II and IIi students are eligible to earn Graduation with Leadership Distinction.  

Recipients of Graduation with Leadership Honors will be recognized with certificates and crimson cords and recipients of Graduation with Leadership Distinction will be recognized with certificates and silver cords.  The cords are to be worn with graduation gowns.
