Submissions will be categorized into a Gold Doubloon or Purple Jewel program based on the depth of the experience provided, determined by the committee using your submission, and funded and marketed in slightly different manners.

Gold Doubloon Program: During the application process you may choose to designate that you would like to be considered for placement as a Gold Doubloon Program. This designation provides three key benefits. You will be able to request a higher maximum for funding, you will be prominently placed and/or denoted on marketing materials, and you will be a featured program across the division.

To achieve Gold Doubloon Program status you must directly relate to the theme and outlined topics. You must provide rich detail of the programs scope, intended audience, and potential impact. This will be evaluated by the evidence provided in the Student Affairs Thematic Program Proposal (SATPP) and will be reviewed by the Student Affairs Innovative Program Council (IPC) Review Committee. Program proposals should exemplify the following characteristics:

  1. Collaboration with various Student Affairs units (ex. Greek Life, Student Leadership, Campus Wellness) or departments (ex. Student Involvement and Leadership, Campus Recreation and Wellness) and student organizations.
  2. Collaboration across the curriculum with academic areas or off campus constituencies.
  3. Founded in applicable theory and students actively engage in their learning.
  4. Articulate clear learning outcomes, use measurement tools, and provide information on the distribution, collection, and implementation of data collected.

Purple Jewel Program: Unless noted as a Gold Doubloon program, all other submissions will be considered for Purple Jewel Program designation. Benefits of being a Purple Jewel Program include placement on marketing materials and the ability to request funding. Additional funding will be discussed on a case by case basis.

Purple Jewel Programs must closely relate to the theme. You must provide details of the program scope, intended audience, and potential impact. This will be evaluated by the evidence provided in the SATPP and will be reviewed by the IPC Review Committee. As a general guide, Purple Jewel Program should incorporate the following characteristics:

  1. Collaboration with Student Affairs offices, departments, and/or student organizations.
  2. Founded in applicable theory and students actively engage in their learning.
  3. Articulate clear learning outcomes, use measurement tools, and provide information on the distribution, collection, and implementation of data collected.
