The University of Wisconsin-Parkside, in association with the University of Wisconsin-Parkside Alumni Association, is accepting nominations for the 2014 Distinguished Alumni Awards. Nominations will be accepted through March 7, 2014.
The Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award and the Distinguished Alumni Service Award have been presented annually for the past 30 years. For 2014, the awards program is expanded to recognize two alumni from each of the university's four colleges.
The Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award is bestowed to a graduate whose extraordinary contributions in his or her chosen field of endeavor are reflective of the exemplary qualities of the person and their specific field of study at UW-Parkside. Criteria for evaluation include positions of leadership in professional societies and organizations, commitment to excellence, and lifelong learning and evidence of continued growth in his or her profession.
The Distinguished Alumni Service Award is bestowed to a graduate who has performed exemplary service to UW-Parkside and/or the community.
Both awards are a reflection of UW-Parkside and provide inspiration and encouragement for current students.
A completed current nomination form, nomination narrative and a CV/resume must accompany each nomination. Although not required, letters of recommendation and any other relevant supporting documents may be provided.
Nominees must hold a bachelor's or master's degree from UW-Parkside, and any interested persons may nominate alumni. With the expansion of the program, awards will be presented at an inaugural formal presentation on campus in May. A person who was previously nominated but not selected may be nominated again.
