Celebration of University Leadership
The Celebration of University Leadership (CUL) award ceremony is a formal event held every spring in honor of Salisbury University’s student leaders, the clubs and organizations they maintain, and the faculty and staff advisors who advance their efforts by helping them along the way.
Salisbury University boasts a wide array of student clubs and organizations, each with a unique purpose and a diverse group of members. The CUL awards bring together the faces behind those groups in recognition of the hardest working among them and in recognition of the most attended and engaging events that have resulted from all their collaborative efforts.
Awards include but are not limited to Outstanding Registered Student Organization (RSO), Event of the Year, Outstanding Student Organization Website, Outstanding RSO President, Outstanding Faculty Advisor, and the Faculty / Staff Lifetime Achievement Award.
Student leaders also have the opportunity to devise awards of their own to recognize outstanding achievement and dedication within their organizations.
The event is held in the Wicomico Room, dress is formal, and refreshments are served.
