Award Criteria/Nomination Form

All living Marygrove College alumni (those who have earned undergraduate or graduate degrees) are eligible for this award. Alumni, family, friends, co-workers, faculty, staff and students may submit nominations. Self-nominations are accepted. The Alumni Association Advisory Council will review nominations and select the award recipients.

The Distinguished Alumni Awards celebrate the ideals of competence (the ability to understand and participate effectively in the promise of our evolving world), compassion (the capacity to care about and respect the worth and dignity of people), and commitment (the will to act responsibly based upon one’s beliefs and to contribute to the building of a more just and humane world), qualities that Marygrove has always tried to instill in its graduates. These awards honor graduates who have made significant contributions and demonstrated leadership in any of the following areas:

  1. Professional, educational or artistic endeavors
  2. The community through government service and/or civic organizations (such as Lions Club, City Planning Commissions, government committees, etc.)
  3. Political action, social justice or volunteer activities in schools, hospitals, etc.
  4. Marygrove College

Based on the number of qualified applicants, up to six awards will be given annually. For one of these awards, special consideration will be given to alums who graduated within the last 15 years. All nominations will remain on file and will be reconsidered for two consecutive years.
