Alumni citation program: new and improved

We've revamped our alumni citation program, and we need your help in finding exemplary graduates to recognize this spring.

Please consider for a minute the alumni you know, from any class year and any academic program, who should be nominated for an alumni citation award. There are three awards to choose from:

The Young Alumni Leadership Award
is given to recent graduates (10 years or fewer past graduation) who have already made noteworthy contributions to their communities, their industry, or their causes.

The Distinguished Alumni Citation is awarded to alumni of all ages and backgrounds and recognizes extraordinary achievement. 

The Sparks Medallion recipients have demonstrated a unique level of loyalty and the commitment to the University, as was embodied by one of our most revered alumni, Lestle J. Sparks, the award's namesake.

Making a nomination is easy. Just do one of the following:

Nominate someone online through our online form or download and send in the printable form instead.
