In 1988, the Alumni Association Board of Directors established the Alumni Awards. We are now combining the long-standing Alumni Awards and the newer Notable Alumni awards into a tiered program of recognition in order to recognize alumni for outstanding achievements in their professions, in their communities, and in service to the University.

The Notable Alumni Award is a lifelong honor; once a Notable, always a Notable. Notables represent the different sectors of the community, government, nonprofits, the business world and various departments of the university. Being named a Notable qualifies you for consideration for the higher awards in every subsequent year.

The Distinguished Alumni Award recognizes alumni who have provided leadership or attained recognition on a national or regional level within their profession or business; or who have provided extraordinary service to their community.

The Outstanding Alumni Service Award recognizes alumni who have made significant contributions to both the growth and development of the university through dedication and support of the institution and the Alumni Association.
