Alumni of the Year Award

We are proud of our alumni, their accomplishments, and contributions to their communities. Since 1983, outstanding alumni have been recognized by the College with the annual Alumni of the Year award.

Two awards are presented at the College’s commencement ceremony. One award is given to an alumnus or alumna who attended/graduated more than 10 years ago. The other award is for an individual who attended/graduated within the past 10 years.

The Alumni Network invites the community to make nominations for these two awards. All nominations are reviewed by a committee of alumni, faculty/staff, and community members who select the two individuals who will be honored.

The 2020 Alumni of the Year Award nomination period is open from 8/1/2019 – 10/1/2019
