The COMMITMENT TO SERVICE AWARD recognizes TWO students per MICC member campus for either the breadth or the depth of his/her community involvement or service experience(s) and the demonstration of meaningful reflection. Recipients, for example, may have devoted multiple years to one program or have demonstrated their leadership by making multiple contributions to her/his institution and community through community service involvement.
- Nominations for this award must be submitted by the President’s Office (or their designee) of each MICC member campus. It is at the discretion of each campus to determine the selection of Commitment to Service nominees.
- Nominees for the Commitment to Service Award who submit their surveys are the pool of candidates for the Outstanding Community Impact award. A review committee determines the winners of the Outstanding Community Impact Award. Please note: nominees do not receive both awards, if they are chosen for the Outstanding Community Impact Award, they receive that top award only.
