Alumni Association Awards

About the Alumni Association Awards

Father Edward Sorin, C.S.C., founded the University of Notre Dame with the intention that it would become “one of the most powerful means for doing good in this country.” And every day, our alumni, parents, and friends work to make his vision a reality. The Notre Dame Alumni Association is dedicated to honoring these outstanding achievements of our graduates, faculty, staff, and extended family. Our awards are in six categories where the University encourages excellence: The Arts, Athletics, Service to the Alumni Association, Service to Country, Service to Humanity, Service to the University.

The Alumni Association asks for award nominations three times a year.  Alumni, parents, and friends may submit nominations.  To see the individual award nomination period, go to the Award Types drop down menu above.
