Traditions of Excellence Distinguished Alumni Awards

The UW-Parkside Distinguished Alumni Awards celebrate and honor the rich legacy of learning and accomplishments by those graduates who have excelled in their chosen field or performed exemplary service to our community.

Each year the awards program recognizes alumni from each of the university's four colleges in the categories of achievement and service.   

Nominations open for the 2020 Distinguished Alumni Awards


UW-Parkside, in partnership with the UW-Parkside Alumni Association, is accepting nominations for its 2019 Distinguished Alumni Awards. Deadline for nominations is December 13, 2019.

The awards program recognizes two alumni from each of the university’s four colleges.

The Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award is bestowed to graduates who have shown exceptional achievement within their profession. Criteria for evaluation include positions of leadership in professional societies and organizations, commitment to excellence and lifelong learning, and evidence of continued growth in their professional field.

The Distinguished Alumni Service Award is bestowed to graduates who have performed exemplary service to UW-Parkside and the surrounding communities.

Both awards are a reflection of UW-Parkside and provide inspiration and encouragement for current students.

A completed nomination form and nomination narrative must accompany each nomination. Letters of recommendation, current CV/resume, and any other relevant supporting documents are encouraged.

Nominees must hold a bachelor’s or master’s degree from UW-Parkside, and any interested persons may nominate alumni. The awards will be presented at a formal ceremony on campus on May 15, 2020. A person who has been nominated previously but not selected may be nominated again.
