Ebenezer D. Bassett, Class of 1853


Ebenezer D. Bassett Student Achievement Award

"We want to challenge unhealthy images of college men by showcasing men who exemplify acceptable standards of conduct and virtue."

We, HEALTHYfellows / Man Enough Support Initiative, are now accepting nominations for the 2018 Ebenezer D. Bassett Student Achievement Awards. The Student Achievement Award is bestowed annually upon CCSU male students who are committed to personal excellence. Over the past eight years, we have given out nearly two hundred recognition awards. The award was created as a vehicle to recognize and inspire the achievements of CCSU's male students.

We strongly encourage you to participate in our retention effort by nominating a male student(s) for this recognition award. We have many men who are excelling academically, personally, and/or professionally. Consider partnering with us as we attempt to highlight the success of college men, while using the awards ceremony as a vehicle to inspire the success of all male students. This award exists as a response to closing the gender achievement gap taking place in educational systems around the country. You can nominate a student individually or collectively with other faculty, administrators, and/or students. All nomination materials must be received, electronically, by Friday, March 2, 2018.
