Call for nominations for Distinguished Alumni Awards

February 20, 2012

What do a journalist, international business consultant, park ranger, and cardiologist have in common? They've all been awarded Distinguished Alumni Awards!

Help build CSU greatness by nominating a friend, colleague, or mentor for an award - there are 18 awards to choose from.

Recognize that someone connected to CSU who has excelled in their career, volunteer work, or academic endeavors.

New for 2012!
  • Distinguished International Alumni Award – recognize an international alumnus for excellent work in his or her home country.
  • The Distinguished Faculty Award now accepts nominations for emeriti or current faculty.
  • Distinguished Alumni Employee Award – now in its second year, the award recognizes an alumnus who is also a CSU employee.
The nomination process requires:
  • answers to several questions about the person’s personal endeavors and commitment to the university;
  • a resume or vitae of the nominated person; and
  • supporting documents such as letters of recommendation, newspaper clippings, or other awards.

Nomination guidelines and forms


All nominations must be submitted by April 2, 2012 at 5 p.m. MST.

Not all awards require the recipient to have a degree from CSU – but they all require a dedication to the person’s industry or community, and bring honor to the university.

The awards will be presented at a formal event during Homecoming & Family Weekend in October 2012.

To read details of each award and find the nominating forms, visit the CSU Alumni Association website.
