Voice & Action National Advisor Award

What is the Voice and Action National Advisor Award?

The Voice and Action National Advisor Award is presented to professionals who work with undergraduate students from colleges and universities as well as communities across the country. Campus Pride recognizes the outstanding contributions of theses dedicated professionals and the indelible impact that their efforts have on student leaders in the LGBTQ and ally movement for equality.  The annual award is presented in partnership with ACPA – College Student Educators International.

Who can apply/receive a Voice and Action National Advisor Award?

The Voice and Action National Advisor Award may be awarded to any individual who works with undergraduate students from a college/university or community AND has been nominated by a current undergraduate student who is enrolled for the Fall 2015 and/or Spring 2016 at an accredited institution of higher education in the United States of America.  Graduate professionals may be nominated for this award along with other part-time or full-time, paid or volunteer professionals; however, undergraduate level students are not eligible for the Voice and Action National Advisor Award.

How will the Voice and Action National Advisor Award recipient be chosen?

After the nomination is received by the Voice & Action Award Committee, the committee will reach out to the nominated advisor and encourage them to apply for the award. Once the nominated professional has been contacted only those who successfully complete a full application by the deadline will be considered for the honor. Applicants are reviewed based on their resume, essays, and letters of support. Campus Pride will organize a committee of student leaders, professionals in the field of higher education and national leaders who will decide the recipient. Each recipient must demonstrate how they practice the principles and ideals of mission and values of Campus Pride as they bring about positive change in advising LGBTQ and ally students.  The individual will receive a complimentary registration to the ACPA Convention as part of the award.  The individual will be presented the award in July at the Campus Pride LGBTQ Professional Academy for Advisors and also receive registration to attend The Academy as a featured guest educator in residence.
