As 2020 continues to surprise us, it’s no surprise that we won’t be able to host the Louie Awards this year. And while we won't have the cake, live audience, or themed decorations, we DO have exceptional people working in our Division, and we ARE excited to recognize them! The Lucy Awards are a virtual, pandemic-safe, recognition of those who help the Division of Student Affairs run smoothly no matter the situation. Winners will receive swag and will be recognized with a personal congratulatory video message from Dr. Eliseo "Cheo" Torres. Videos will also be posted on our social media channels on Friday, Dec. 11. The Lucys nomination form will be open through Monday, Nov. 30.
