Q: What is the process for selecting Alumni Award recipients?
A: Every year in fall quarter Alumni Relations puts out an invitation, far and wide, asking alumni, faculty and staff to submit nominations in six categories. A subcommittee of the Alumni Board of Governors then votes on the nominees and sends their recommendations to the president and vice president for University Advancement, who give final approval to the awardees.
The following individuals were honored at the 26th Annual Alumni Awards celebration on April 5.
