The Center for Service and Social Action recognizes our student staff who demonstrate leadership and significant commitment that advances the mission of John Carroll University in developing men and women for others through service.

Congratulations to Ty McTigue, Katie Traush, and John Brady ’14 and Liz Malloy ’15 for winning the first Student Staff Awards in 2013-2014! All four students have exemplified leadership and service through their work with We the People, Boler Community Day, Jesuit Day of Service, and more.

We expect that student staff will display commitment through dependability (completing all service assignments with rare cancellations) and a high level of engagement with peers and community members.

The award will be given based on the following criteria:

  • Evidence of significant initiative; going above and beyond the minimum responsibilities
  • Demonstrated leadership; the ability to prepare and motivate fellow JCU students
  • Proactive thinking to enhance the service experience on and off campus
  • A positive attitude that is recognized by community partners and JCU peers
  • Dependability; can be counted on for all service assignments with rare cancellations
  • Meaningful contributions to the community service initiatives undertaken by CSSA and the University
  • Commitment to the JCU and CSSA Mission

Candidates may be nominated by the staff in the Center for Service and Social Action, peers, JCU faculty/staff, and community partners. Selection will be made by the Director of CSSA and CSSA Advisory Committee members. The recipient will receive recognition on a perpetual plaque that hangs in the CSSA office and on the CSSA website, as well as an award certificate to keep.

The award will be given six times each academic year. A student may win the award once per academic year.
