The Varsity Team Service Award is awarded to one Varsity athletics team annually. Members of the winning varsity team have participated in service as a team and may also have individual members who have participated in service apart from their team. They have shown significant commitment to building relationships with the people they serve and have incorporated meaningful reflection into their post-service experiences.
The Team Awardee is selected by an Award Committee consisting of the Director of the Center for Service and Social Action, the Director of Athletics, the Assistant Director of Athletics, the team Chaplain, the Faculty Representative to OAC and NCAA, and the current president of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC). The winning team will be announced during DIII week each April and will receive a certificate and their name on two perpetual plaques – one to be displayed in the CSSA office and one in the Athletics hallway.
