Frostburg State University’s Lane University Center, part of Student and Community Involvement, was honored with the Excellence in Student Training Award by the Association of College Unions International at its conference this month in Orlando, Fla.

The Excellence in Student Training Award honors a campus for its innovative approach and commitment to effectively prepare students with the skills and leadership to staff a college union facility. A complex yearlong commitment, the training program at the Lane University Center features a series of skill-based courses for a variety of positions, ongoing relationship-building activities, trips to observe operations at other institutions and intentional opportunities for reflection and the reinforcement of learning.

FSU’s Lane University Center hosts nearly 5,000 events a year for faculty, staff, students and the community with a focus on the events atmosphere. Its 35 student employees work nearly 15,000 hours a year to assist with the operation of the building and support campus-life initiatives at the University.

“The Lane University Center prides itself on helping to build community on campus through the services the building staff provides,” said Robert Webber, director of the center.

Founded in 1914, ACUI is a nonprofit educational organization that brings together college union and student activities professionals from hundreds of schools in seven countries. Its members work on urban and rural campuses, in two-year and four-year institutions and at large and small schools.
