4) Graduate Student Award for Exemplary Initiative - This award is bestowed upon the student that best exhibits the guiding principles of leadership, citizenship, and partnership.:

Leadership: Motivating others to take actions that would not otherwise have been taken. Leadership is measured by the extent to which an individual or groups of individuals can influence and energize the ideas, actions and capabilities of others toward the betterment of society.

Citizenship: The ability to apply knowledge and skills for responsible civic life and action. UC's emphasis is on public engagement and ethical purpose.

Partnership: Working collaboratively to address complex issues and problems, both within and beyond the boundaries of UC. A university cannot solve problems by working in isolation. It must do so by interacting with others. By working in partnerships, we gain an understanding and appreciation of what can be accomplished together that could not have been accomplished alone. We also affirm the importance of diversity, since constructive change often occurs when individuals and groups with different identities and various priorities come together.
