Starting in 2014-2015, the Legacy Awards presents both the Maximus Awards and the Student Leadership Awards in one ceremony and one nomination form is used for all awards. As both sets of awards celebrate leadership and contributions to CI through different lenses, it is a natural collaboration that aims to keep each award distinct yet highlight how complementary and indispensable they are to each other.

Award Nomination Process
In order to ensure that all deserving individuals, groups and events are considered for awards, Student Affairs encourages the campus community to nominate those who have made significant contributions this year to the co-curricular life of CSU Channel Islands. Individuals may nominate more than one person and self-nominations are encouraged. You may view the criteria for the Student Leadership Awards by clicking the links below.
Award recipients are selected by a committee of individuals representing faculty, staff and previous award recipients. Using a blind review process, the committee reviews the nominations submitted by nominators and nominees.
