Leadership Dinner

24th Annual Leadership Awards Dinner

Olivet College annually recognizes leaders across the state of Michigan who serve their communities through the Leadership in Individual and Social Responsibility Award. This state-wide award honors individuals and organizations whose work in the community or across the state exemplifies what it means to be a responsible leader in today’s world. In addition, the institution also recognize individuals who have contributed to the growth and development of Olivet College. Honorees display the character and competence of the Olivet College Compact, and therefore serve as role models for students. The college seeks to honor those who, in the words of the Olivet College vision, “accept responsibility for themselves and others in an increasingly diverse society.”
