Outstanding Collaborative Program
The Outstanding Collaborative Program Award recognizes a campus program, project, or event organized and completed through the collaborative effort of two or more student groups or campus organizations. This award is based on the concept of encouraging student groups to seek out other organizations to achieve a common goal.
The award was given to an event that united students from 20 different countries and had over 200 students and staff volunteering to make it successful. The nominator described the event as the "epitome of a positive partnership between student groups, the UNK campus, and the Kearney community." Additionally, this year, over 2,800 individuals attended the event which easily surpasses 2,500 from the previous year.
The Outstanding Collaborative Program for 2012 is the Scott D. Morris International and Cultural Festival in collaboration with the International Student Association, Chinese Students and Scholars Association, Japanese Association at Kearney, Nepalese Student Association, Asian American Student Association, African Student Association, South Korean Student Association, and Hispanic Student Association.
Members of Scott D. Morris International & Cultural Festival Committee with Cameron Deter, 2013 Student Body President; and Joseph Oravecz, Dean, Division of Student Affairs.
