Each year the Illinois State University’s Alumni Association recognizes individuals who personify the University’s tradition as an environment for excellence.  Through outstanding achievements and contributions, these individuals bring honor to Illinois State and the Alumni Association.  Established in 1971 with one award, the program has grown to four award categories to better recognize the accomplishments of alumni at different stages of their careers.

Recognizing the professional and service accomplishments of alumni is vital to the Alumni Association awards program.  To view the award categories and to nominate a deserving alumnus by May 30, click on Awards. The process can be completed within minutes.

Award recipients will be honored on Founders Day, Feb.19, 2009.  Questions about the Alumni Awards program may be e-mailed to Gina Bianchi or asked by calling (800) 366-4478.
