The Western Oregon University Alumni Award of Excellence is awarded each year to an alumnus (living or deceased) for their contributions and services to the university and community as well as for their distinguished work in their profession.
This award does more than honor these former students. It spotlights the accomplishments of Western and thereby increases the pride we all feel in our university.
Any alumnus, faculty or staff member may place a name in nomination. Nominations received from alumni shall receive priority consideration for the award over nominations from non-alumni nominations. No anonymous nominations will be accepted. All nominations are kept confidential. Nominees that are not selected, their nominator will be sent a letter informing them of the decision and encourage them to resubmit their nominee for the following year. Nominations are good for only one year, and will need to be resubmitted. The deadline for nominations is the last week in February.
*Those ineligible for nomination include: A candidate for any public office; a current employee of WOU; or any alumni board member who is not yet three years removed from their term on the board.*
