We know there are countless Alfred University alumni who, since leaving Alfred, have achieved extraordinary things in their lives and careers. Take a moment to recognize an outstanding AU alum!
Each year during Reunion Weekend in June and Homecoming in September, the Alfred University Alumni Association recognizes honored alumni and others who have contributed much to AU, their workplace and society in general. There are five awards given recognizing distinguished achievement, distinguished service, service to women and lifetime service to AU, and a new award to honor the unique achievements of a young graduate of the last decade.
The process by which nominees are chosen for awards is the responsibility of the AU Alumni Council’s Awards Committee, working with the Office of Alumni Relations. It is our mission to identify individuals whose exemplary actions, careers, and support significantly enhances the vitality of Alfred University’s prestigious reputation.
The process of collecting and vetting the nominations is an intensive and very important process. As an Alfred University alumnus/a, you are a valuable resource for this process. We hope that as a result of your contacts, you might have information regarding at least one or two alumni who might be deserving of special recognition. Please nominate them for consideration by completing the nomination form.
We welcome your nominations at any time throughout the year. Please contact the Office of Alumni Relations with any questions.
