Alumni Association Accepting Nominations for Distinguished Alumni Awards

Posted on 12/4/2014 5:17:45 PM

When you think of outstanding alumni – who comes to mind? Give them the recognition they deserve. Each year the Alumni Association accepts nominations and honors a group of exceptional alumni who have sustained career achievement or have shown dedicated support to IUP with a Distinguished Alumni Award.

Staff, faculty, students, friends of the university, or any IUP alumnus or alumna is welcome to nominate individuals who deserve recognition. Graduates of Indiana Normal School, Indiana State Teachers College, Indiana State College, and Indiana University of Pennsylvania are all eligible. The deadline for nominations is Monday, August 31, 2015.

After nominations are closed, the Awards Committee of the IUP Alumni Association  will review the nominations and present recommendations to the Board of Directors. Once finalists are selected, they will be honored at the annual Distinguished Alumni Awards ceremony, which takes place each spring.

You can see a full list of alumni who have been recognized online, as well as alumni profiles highlighting their career achievements.

To nominate an alumnus or alumna, fill out the nomination form provided on the IUP website.
