Students selected for the Society personify the ideals of the University as being caring, compassionate, ethical, proficient and creative individuals who have demonstrated the qualities needed to be effective leaders and members of interprofessional teams. They may be taking their programs of study on campus or online.

  2. Embodying the characteristics of servant leadership including listening, empathy, awareness, persuasion, conceptualization, foresight, stewardship, commitment to the growth of others, and building community
  3. Exemplifying a commitment to enhancing diversity, equity and inclusion by working effectively with diverse groups including other health professional students
  4. Promoting interprofessional and interpersonal respect and understanding
  5. Significant accomplishments and service to university-wide or interprofessional initiatives on campus or online
  6. Potential for future contributions as a leader not only in their own profession, but also inthe broader context of health care or biomedical research
