This award recognizes significant achievements of alumni to society, their profession or Illinois State.
Selection is based upon significant accomplishments in one’s chosen field or avocation. This is measured by noting favorable statewide, national, or international recognition; honors from associations or employers; or documentation illustrating work that has proved beneficial to a pronounced segment of society. Due to their age, nominees for this award are no longer eligible for the Outstanding Young Alumni Award.
The Awards Ceremony is held each spring. Nominations from alumni, the University community, and friends of the University are welcome.
