Nominees must have exhibited an exceptional contribution to a humanitarian need.

President's Volunteer Service Award - given to the student(s) whose service substantially addresses a need in the community. The student must be involved in the creation of a new project or service initiative to address particular need(s). The awardee(s) should demonstrate the highest level of dedication and selfless commitment to their volunteer service and should have accumulated a minimum of 100 hours of service in any involvement in the past year.

Activities Honorary Society (AHS) Induction - The University of Illinois Alumni Association (UIAA) recognizes undergraduate students whose participation in a variety of student organizations on campus has contributed to a better UIC community.

A special new inductee ceremony will occur during the Chancellor's Student Service and Leadership Award Program.

All students selected to be honored at the Chancellor’s Student Service and Leadership Awards program will receive the Chancellor’s Student Service Award (CSSA) recognition.
