New York University’s Inter-Residence Hall Council often will recognize individuals for their hard work and dedication to the organization. This page details that recognition.


The IRHC Pin

The IRHC Pin was created in 2006 to serve as a way for the president and the advisors to recognize students, faculty, and staff for their outstanding commitment to student leadership, hall councils and IRHC. Up to 8 pins are awarded per year, four by the president and four by the advisors. The IRHC Pin is the highest honor the IRHC can bestow. Incoming IRHC Presidents and advisors receive an IRHC Pin as a part of their induction.

The IRHC Alumni Hall of Fame

The IRHC Alumni Hall of Fame was established in 2007.  The IRHC Alumni Hall of Fame is a way for IRHC to recognize outstanding alumni who greatly contributed to the organization while involved and who have made positive contributions in their career path and community post involvement.  Each year IRHC inducts up to two alumni into the Hall of Fame during the Annual Alumni Reception in December.  The IRHC Alumni Hall of Fame inductees are also recognized on a plaque in the IRHC office.
