In 1998, the GSA established the Travis Dixon GSA Service Award to recognize graduate student Travis Dixon’s many years of service to the GSA. In 2002, the GSA renamed the Dixon-Levy GSA Service Award to recognize graduate student Alan Levy’s many years of service to the GSA. The dual name of the award acknowledges that service to graduate students at UC Santa Barbara comes in many forms, not only through serving as an elected GSA officer but also through the advocacy of graduate student interests in various ways.
All graduate students, undergraduates, administrators, faculty, and staff are eligible to be nominated. GSA elected officials are not eligible to be nominated for actions related to their elected role as Executive Officer.
Each spring, the Dixon-Levy GSA Service Award Committee selects the recipient(s).
The recipient(s) are contacted by the selection committee to receive the award during the GSA General Assembly Meeting in June.
