Honored Alumni Award Program

Honored Alumni Banner

Since 1947 the University of Northern Colorado has honored outstanding alumni and friends whose service and achievements embody the University's tradition of excellence. When the University of Northern Colorado Alumni Association was established in 1965, this annual awards program was taken over by the Association. Having grown in size and scope, the annual Honored Alumni Awards induction ceremony has outgrown its place during Homecoming Weekend and will now be held annually in the spring as a stand-alone event.

The current awards program recognizes alumni and friends in five categories:

  • Distinguished Alumnus/a of the Year
  • Distinguished Alumni Service Award
  • Alumni Spirit Award
  • Distinguished Service Award
  • Distinguished Honorary Alumnus/a of the Year Award
