The Student Life Achievement Awards, affectionately known as the "STUEYS," is an annual celebration of NSUís best in Academic Excellence, Student Centered, Integrity, Innovation, Opportunity, Scholarship/Research, Diversity, and Community.
More than a decade ago, it was the vision of Brad Williams, Ed.D., Vice President of Student Affairs, to create a celebration to recognize those who further a sense of campus community. Thus, the Student Life Achievement Awards were born. While the world finds itself in difficult times, both politically and economically, Nova Southeastern University has never been stronger and the sense of campus community continues to grow and flourish. This event is a celebration of the hundreds of activities designed to enrich the overall student experience of the NSU community.
The Nomination Process
Every NSU student, staff, and faculty member is eligible for nomination. The time period considered for nomination is from August through March of each academic year. Each nominee is selected by the Student Life Achievement Awards Nomination Committee composed of cross-functional professionals from NSU’s colleges, centers, schools, and departments.
The Student of the Year nominees are selected by the academic deans of NSU’s centers, colleges, and schools.
The Student Life Achievement Awards voting committee is composed of the NSU chancellor, NSU president, executive vice president of administration, and former STUEY award winners. Winners of the Student Life Achievement Awards are now permanent delegates to the Knights of the Academy and will be a part of the voting process for future winners.

Robert T. Hasty, D.O., FACOI, College of Osteopathic Medicine
Dr. Robert Hasty has been a mentor and leader for the Student Osteopathic Internal Medicine Association (SOIMA) at NSU. SOIMA’s members recognize his diligent efforts to meet their needs in a timely manner. He regularly attends their meetings and played a crucial role in the October 2010 Azzociazione Chirurghi Ospedalieri Italiani (ACOI) conference held in California. Due to Hasty’s generosity and unwavering encouragement, SOIMA was able to win the ACOI Facebook Contest which subsequently awarded the organization the financial means to take 12 students to the conference free of charge. Hasty believes in the development of the student which he advocates in his lectures through a humorous attitude and interactive learning environment. His infectious enthusiasm for medicine continues to have a lasting impact on all students, faculty and staff he encounters.
C.A.U.S.E. – Community Action Using Student Empowerment
In March of 2010, a group of 15 students went on an Alternative Spring Break trip to New Orleans to serve a city still living in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. These students spent their Spring Break rebuilding homes with Habitat for Humanity and felt empowered to share this experience in the hopes of bringing more students to New Orleans to help out. This effort brought forth the origin of C.A.U.S.E. Since then, the group has been back in New Orleans, collaborated with students from the Regional Campus in Tampa for a day of service in Orlando, and traveled to Nashville, Tennessee to rebuild homes from a devastating flood. This passionate and dedicated student leader group has plans on continuing their community service efforts by re-visiting New Orleans as well as a trip to the Galapagos Islands this spring.
