The NYU Student Affairs Hallmark Awards recognizes innovative and exemplary staff members and student employees who positively impact students, staff, and the University community. The Hallmark awards promote the use and recognition of our six hallmarks while celebrating best practices and promoting community within the Division. Nominees should demonstrate excellence in one or a few Hallmarks.

The 2021 Virtual Hallmark Awards will take place on Thursday, May 6 at 3pm via Zoom.


  • Nominees must be a full- or part-time staff member within the Division of Student Affairs.
  • New staff members are expected to pass probation prior to being considered for a Hallmark Award.
  • Student staff members in Student Affairs are eligible for a Student Employee award.
  • Previous Hallmark award recipients are not eligible to be nominated.
