ASU seeks nominations for 2022 MLK Jr. Student Servant-Leadership Award


|

Colleen Jennings-Roggensack, Arizona State University vice president for cultural affairs and ASU Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. committee chair, is soliciting nominations for the 2022 ASU Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Student Servant-Leadership Award.

The ASU MLK Jr. Committee will present a Servant-Leadership Award to an ASU student at the MLK Breakfast on Thursday, Jan. 20, 2022, at the Tempe campus.

Servant-leadership is a practical philosophy, which supports people who choose to serve first and then lead as a way of expanding service to individuals and institutions. Servant leaders may or may not hold formal leadership positions. Servant-leadership encourages collaboration, trust, foresight, listening and the ethical use of power and empowerment.

The committee requests the help of the ASU community in identifying a student servant-leadership awardee. The student must be currently enrolled full-time, exemplify the ideals of servant-leadership and have a track record of commitment through volunteer service. A candidate may submit his or her resume with the form. Letters of recommendation are acceptable, but no more than two. Self-nominations are encouraged.

The ASU MLK Jr. Committee will provide a $2,000 scholarship to the awardee to be used toward his or her educational costs. This scholarship is available to ASU full-time undergraduate or graduate students. The winner must be a full-time student during the spring 2022 semester.

All applications will be reviewed, and three finalists will be selected. Finalists will have 30-minute interviews with the committee on Friday, Oct. 15. Finalists will be contacted for their interview. The awardee must be able to attend the breakfast on Jan. 20.

Please submit this nomination by close of business on Monday, Sept. 27. Scan and e-mail to Michelle Johnson at mmjcap@asu.edu with the subject line: 2022 MLK Student Nomination – Last name of candidate.
