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.
The Awards Ceremony is held each spring. Nominations from alumni, the University community, and friends of the University are welcome. Current active members of a University board are NOT eligible to receive an Alumni Award. They may be nominated once their service to the board expires.
