Student Gold Medallion Awards

In 1996, the Student Gold Medallion Awards were launched in recognition of the significant ongoing contributions students make to the success of institutional programs, activities and services. The Student Gold Medallion is the most prestigious award presented by the University.

 All currently enrolled EMU graduate and undergraduate students in good standing are eligible to be nominated for an SGMA. Nominated student organizations must be officially recognized and in good standing with Campus Life. For a list of active organizations in good standing visit
