2022 Undergraduate Award of Distinction

The North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) named Dylan Mace (Kent State University, 2022) as a 2022 Undergraduate of Distinction. 

The NIC’s Undergraduate Award of Distinction recognizes fraternity men who, throughout in their collegiate experience, have found an outlet for development as both a leader and a better man. They are exemplary members of their organizations and serve their brothers, campuses and fraternity/sorority communities with humble confidence.

A change-maker in the Kent State community, Mace does not shy away from hard conversations and has a strong desire to uplift individuals and organizations around him. Respected by and engaged with his peers, Mace took on leadership roles at Kent State as Delta Omega Chapter president and IFC president, IFC director of new member education and served as Kent State’s Undergraduate Trustee – a role appointed by the Governor of Ohio – all while working on campus, holding an internship, coaching a local amateur soccer league and maintaining a near-perfect 4.0 GPA. An advocate for the fraternity experience, he was the primary organizer for the 2021 Anti-Hazing Week, implemented a Men’s Mental Health Week and worked with fraternity and sorority advisors across the state to educate students about the recently enacted Collin’s Law.
