Each year the USF Alumni Association recognizes the achievements of outstanding alumni. Recipients are selected by the Executive Board of the Alumni Association Board of Directors based on outstanding professional and personal successes, as well as involvement in civic, cultural or charitable activities.
The USF Alumni Association Awards program is an outstanding opportunity to showcase our exceptional alumni, but we need your help in identifying graduates who deserve this honor.
Anyone can nominate and they are asked to provide a letter of recommendation describing the individual’s outstanding characteristics along with the nominee’s biographical background or a current resume supporting their occupational excellence. They may also nominate more than one person for each award as well as nominate one person for both the College Alumni Award and Presidential Award. Self-nominations are accepted.
Criterion: Outstanding accomplishment in one’s chosen career field and the selection committee will also consider civic, cultural and charitable involvement.
Four outstanding alumni will be chosen annually to represent the university’s four colleges, highlighting the diverse disciplines of a comprehensive university. The criterion for the awards is outstanding professional accomplishments and the selection committee will also consider civic, cultural and charitable involvement.
The most prestigious award given by the USF Alumni Association, the Presidential Alumna/Alumnus of the Year, is awarded regardless of the college they graduated from, who has achieved outstanding success or recognition. The selection committee particularly looks for individuals who have achieved national, regional, or statewide prominence either in their professional fields or through their involvement in civic, cultural, or charitable activities.
Award honorees and their guests will be invited to join us for a delicious brunch and awards ceremony in San Damiano Hall, Motherhouse 3rd Floor.
Please submit all nominations by Sep. 1 to the Alumni Office (S105), University of St. Francis, 500 Wilcox St., Joliet, IL 60435 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
