Alumni Service Award

The presentation of the Alumni Service Award has been a longstanding tradition at the Court and the Alumni Board would like it to become a better-known one. For decades at the Reunion luncheon, the Alumni Association has named an outstanding alumna, based on qualities of service to both the University and the Alumni Association. The Alumni Board would like to increase the input from the Association's general population by publicizing the award and its criteria more broadly in e-mail messages, website postings, the annual magazine and with the use of social media.

Do you know a GCU alumna/us who is or has been active in the Alumni Association, shown a continuing involvement in its activities, chapters and/or club and The Court? The nomination period is open from October through February 1.

 

Download a nomination form and return it to the Office of Alumni Engagement by February 1.
