Dixon-Levy GSA Service Award

Each spring, winner(s) are selected by the Dixon-Levy Award Committee.  Nominees and winner(s) are contacted by the selection committee, and winner(s)  receive an award during the Graduate Student Association General Assembly Meeting in June.

History of the Award

In 1998, the GSA established the Travis Dixon GSA Service Award, in recognition of graduate student Travis Dixon’s many years of service to the GSA. In 2002, the GSA renamed the award as the Dixon-Levy GSA Service Award, in recognition of graduate student Alan Levy’s many years of service to the GSA. The dual name of the award acknowledges that service to graduate students at UCSB comes in many forms, not only through serving as an elected GSA Officer, but also through advocacy of graduate student interests in a variety of other ways.

Please provide information about a member of the campus community who has unselfishly devoted him/herself to the improvement of graduate student life.  To nominate an individual, please follow the link below and describe in detail the actions taken by the nominee to justify him or her receiving this prestigious award.

Eligibility

All graduate students, undergraduates, administrators, faculty, and staff are eligible to be nominated.  GSA elected officials are not eligible to be nominated for actions related to their elected role as an Executive Officer.

Award Criteria

This prestigious award will be given to outstanding members of the university community who have unselfishly devoted themselves to the improvement of graduate student life. Contributions to graduate life should extend beyond what is deemed appropriate to everyday work or civic service responsibilities.
