Student Leadership Assembly: All Honors Day


April 30, 2020

Every year during the university-wide celebration known as All Honors Day, student leaders are recognized for their contributions and accomplishments during the Student Leadership Assembly. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 we are unable to have the Student Leadership Assembly on April 25 in person. 

We will be holding a Virtual Student Leadership Assembly on Thursday, April 30 on all of our social media platforms (@xuinvolvement) to honor our students for their leadership excellence and community involvement. After, the Virtual Student Leadership please check back for the list of the 2020 Award Recipients and the video honoring all of the students.

The Student Leadership Assembly includes numerous awards for student leaders active across campus. The awards recognize students of all ages and experience levels.
