Alumni Profile

Alumni Achivement Awards

Each year the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences asks its 120,000 alumni to bring forward the names of individuals who they believe best exemplify a liberal arts education. From these nominations, the college's Alumni Association selects a handful to be recognized for their outstanding achievements. As always, they are a remarkable lot. We proudly present this year's recipients.
