Distinguished Student Leaders

The Distinguished Student Leaders in Construction Management designation was created to showcase students who have demonstrated exemplary academic and leadership abilities. To become a Distinguished Student Leader, students must fall into one of four categories: a member of the Sigma Lambda Chi honor society, a Construction Student Association officer, a student competition team member, or recognized as a distinguished communicator.
