The Peter C. Cook Leadership Academy

Nomination FAQ's

Yes! There is no limit as to how many students you can nominate.

The ideal CLA candidate is a student that you, the nominator, see as exceptional! The criteria include high academic achievement, active involvement in the campus community, dedication to the public good, a passion to lead, and a commitment to personal growth. However, we are also looking for those students who may not be actively engaged in leadership activities, but could greatly benefit from intentional development opportunities in order to expand & build confidence in their capabilities. 

The nominee will be notified via email once the nomination form has been submitted. Nominator information will be not shared if you would like to remain anonymous. If you would like your student to know you’ve nominated them, please let them know and encourage them to apply when applications open on Monday, December 4.
