This Honour is given to individuals deemed to have provided outstanding service related to Residence Life within the RLPA region.  Typically given to individuals who are retiring, moving into a different area of work or moving out of our region, this award recognizes professionals who have dedicated significant time to our field and in doing so, positively impacted the lives of both students and colleagues.

The award criteria include:

  1. Outstanding contribution to the field of residence life within the RLPA region
  2. Long term service within the field
  3. Lasting impact on the field and its practitioners
  4. Lasting impact on students
  5. Formal service on the board is not required but can be taken into account
