The dean's cup is a yearlong competition amongst engineering students to see which organization can contribute the most volunteer hours to the College. Organizations are separated into two separate categories, Disciplinary and Interdisciplinary. Winners will be announced at the ESLC Leadership Retreat.
The purpose of Dean's Cup is to motivate and encourage engineering students to engage in service and service-learning activities. When individual students accumulate hours for their organizations they will also accumulate hours to becoming a ninjaneer. All hours contribute to the overall University service hours.
Dean's Cup opportunities are all events related to the advancement of the College of Engineering as a whole. All ESLC hosted events are considered Deans Cup opportunities due to the fact ESLC's goal is to provide support to all engineering student organizations in their academic and professional development. Events not hosted by ESLC but maintain the same vision are eligible to be part of the Dean's Cup. Eligibility must receive approval from the entire ESLC Council and its advisor at least one month prior to the event date.
To assist organizations, it is the ESLC’s duty to notify and remind the organizations about Deans Cup opportunities at least 1-2 weeks in advance. If the council is unable to inform the organizations with sufficient time, it is at the council’s discretion to allow bonus points for that particular event.
Dean's Cup points will be used to represent an organizations involvement with the College of Engineering through Deans Cup opportunities. A single point will be rewarded for 30 minutes of volunteer work. At the end of the spring semester points will be tallied and the winners will be determined from the two categories, Disciplinary and Interdisciplinary.
