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.
