Message from the Dean: A new way to honor our alumni

Over the years, the College of Arts & Sciences' alumni awards afforded us opportunities to honor only a few alumni among the many who deserved recognition. This motivated us to re-imagine a program that would expand the core of accomplished alumni whom we could celebrate for success in their careers, communities and service to the college.

We aspired to create a new program that honors more people and encourages engagement among those who desire more involvement with college faculty and students. More.
