Alumni Awards

Each year, the School of Education honors a group of alumni, recognizing them for their achievements and contributions to the world of education, leadership, research methodology, library science and counseling.  We invite them to be part of Commencement to celebrate their accomplishments.  We hope that the remarkable successes of these alumni will inspire our new graduates, and represent the enormous value of a degree from the School of Education.

Alumni Awards nominations can be made by our alumni, community members, faculty, students, and anyone who knows an alumna or alumnus who is deserving of one of our four awards. We also encourage self nominations!

Nominations for the 2020-2021 SOE Alumni Awards will open in January 2021!
