The Kent State University Alumni Association recognizes and honors alumni who, through leadership, character and hard work, have made exceptional contributions in their chosen field, in their communities and at Kent State University. Sponsored by the Kent State University Alumni Association, the Alumni Awards are the university’s most prestigious honors given to alumni.

Hear from the 2016 recipients and their nominators:

With your nomination, you can help recognize alumni who have attained distinguished career success, performed outstanding service to their community, Kent State University or both! 

We need your help! Help us honor those who have given so freely. Nominate a graduate or student who you think is deserving of this recognition. You may also nominate yourself.

All nominees will be notified by letter they have been nominated in February. Once selected, award recipients will be notified by a congratulatory letter in May. Recipients will be honored and celebrated at the Alumni Awards Ceremony in the fall.
