For those who are not aware of the policies and procedures of the Award Committees, please note that committee members closely and carefully review the body of work, credentials, and contributions that each nominee has made to their profession and to the public, and base their decision on the merit of the nominee’s work. After careful review and consideration, each award committee decides on a deserving recipient. The committee works without outside influence, pressure, or persuasion to arrive at its decision.If you know of someone who is deserving of any of the alumni awards, we encourage you to nominate them—the committee members will do their due diligence from that point forward. For purposes of fairness, we appreciate you not contacting any of the committee members to ask for their vote for any of the nominees.
