In 1998 the GSA established the Travis Dixon GSA Service Award in recognition of graduate student Travis Dixon’s many years of service to the GSA. In 2002, the GSA renamed the award as the Dixon-Levy GSA Service Award, in recognition of 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 UCSB comes in many forms, not only through serving as an elected GSA Officer, but also through advocacy of graduate student interests in other ways.
All graduate students, undergraduates, administration, faculty, and staff are eligible to be nominated. GSA elected officers are not eligible to be honored for their work for GSA.
