Call for 2019 Alumni Awards Nominations

By  | 

Crystal Eagle awards on display

The American University Alumni Association has worked to engage alumni since its founding in 1927. For most of those 92 years, it has been governed by a dedicated board of alumni leaders. And since 1948, the alumni association has honored outstanding alumni with its annual alumni awards. 

Alumni awards are the highest honors presented by the AU Alumni Association. Selected annually through a highly competitive process, each recipient has made a lasting impact on society and on AU through outstanding professional, philanthropic, or volunteer accomplishments. “Our alumni are doing incredible work every day in work that is as individual and inspiring as they are,”says President Sylvia Burwell. “It’s a great privilege to honor and share their accomplishments through our alumni awards.”

Nominations for the 2019 Alumni Awards are now open, and we need YOU to share stories of our incredible alumni. “I am continually impressed by nominees and winners each year, and I appreciate the involvement of our entire community in celebrating some of our best and brightest,” says President Burwell.

Awards are presented during an annual celebration hosted during All-American Weekend. The deadline for nominations is April 15, 2019.
