Integral Service Awards

Integral Service Awards was inaugurated in 2016 to recognize the tremendous talent and generosity of our students and the impacts they have made in our community. Each year an outstanding student and a student group is selected as a recipient by the Student Alliance Coordinator and recommendations in the community.

Student Leader Award:

Our first student leader recipient is Elizabeth McAnally for her seven years of service and dedication to the student group, Integral Taiji & Qigong.

Student Group Award

Our student group recognition goes to Entheogenic Research, Integration, and Education (ERIE) for their five years of programming and the phenomenal impact they have had in CIIS and the Bay Area.

Both Elizabeth and ERIE will be bringing their tenure of leadership in Student Alliance to a close as they move forward in their scholarship and integral service in their respective communities. Elizabeth McAnally will offer an Integral Taiji & Qigong demonstration to open our celebration followed by brief awards recognition ceremony and affirmation circle for all that was accomplished this semester!
