The intent of the awards is to honor graduates of the College of Education who have distinguished themselves through scholarly, creative and humanitarian achievement and service to their profession.
These awards recognize outstanding achievements of COE graduates in five categories:
Two awards may be given in this category: one for a distinguished graduate serving at the university level and one for an individual accomplished at the community college level.
Bestowed upon alumni who, through sustained contributions in public service or work towards advancement in international education, demonstrate a commitment to building a better world.
Nominators do not nominate specifically for this category. This award will be chosen from amongst all nominees from all categories.
Winners are selected by a distinguished committee of College of Education emeritus faculty and alumni. When the selection process is complete, nominees and nominators are notified of the results. Once all winners are contacted, the results are posted online.
THE NOMINATION WINDOW FOR THE 2017 DISTINGUISHED ALUMNI AWARDS IS MARCH 8TH through MAY 8TH.
2017 Distinguished Alumni will be honored on Friday, November 17th at the Distinguished Alumni Awards Dinner during the 2017 Homecoming activities in Tallahassee, Florida. Individual winners will be contacted with details regarding the ceremony in early Fall 2017.
