Alumni Awards

Every year, the College of Arts and Sciences recognizes and honors some of our outstanding alumni whose accomplishments and service are tangible evidence of the growing distinction of arts and sciences alumni. Arts and Sciences Alumni Awards include: Distinguished Alumni Achievement; Emerging Leader; and Alumni Distinguished Service.

The Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award recognizes the outstanding career achievements and contributions of our alumni in fields such as arts, business, research, academic, and public service. We are particularly looking for nominees whose work and contributions have been nationally or internationally recognized as outstanding in their fields.

The Distinguished Service Award is to recognize exemplary service to the College of Arts and Sciences, its faculty, students, prospective students or programs.

The Emerging Leader Award recognizes an alumnus/a in their early or mid-career who has demonstrated distinctive and outstanding achievement in their profession and/or through civic involvement.

Nominees for all awards must be living alumni of the College of Arts and Sciences and degree holding graduates of programs currently or previously within the college.

Nominations for the 2024 Alumni Awards are accepted until October 8, 2023.
