CoHEsion acknowledges the abilities of outstanding higher education professionals each year through the Barton/Nelson Leadership & Service Award. The Award is designed to recognize the following:
Qualified nominees are current CoHEsion members that have regularly attended CoHEsion/SETA/Summit/Ellucian Live conferences. Please Note – Awards cannot be granted to the same individual within 3 years. Current CoHEsion board members are not eligible for the award.
So many individuals do outstanding work in their fields, yet are never recognized publicly for their work. This is YOUR opportunity to see that recognition is given! If you know of someone who should receive recognition, please take a moment to nominate them.
Any member of CoHEsion can make a nomination for these awards. Only one nomination is needed to be eligible for the award.
Several years ago CoHEsion (then SETA) began presenting two annual awards (sponsored by Ellucian) for outstanding leadership and service to further the goals of the user base. These two awards honored Gunnell Nelson and Mark Barton, who have had a long and successful tenure in the leadership of the CoHEsion organization (and its predecessors). The first awards were given at the SETA SISU 2000 conference in Orlando. Beginning in 2013, the award was combined into a single award honoring CoHEsion members who have shown great leadership and service to our community.
