Father Edward Sorin, C.S.C., founded the University of Notre Dame with the intention that it would become “one of the most powerful means for doing good in this country.” And every day, we know our alumni, parents, and friends work to make his vision a reality.
The Notre Dame Alumni Association is dedicated to honoring these outstanding achievements of our graduates, faculty, staff, and extended family. Our awards are in six categories where the University encourages excellence:
Nominations are encouraged by all alumni, parents, and friends of the University. Nominations are accepted on a rolling basis, and will be sent to the awards committee for review throughout the year. Please refer to the individual award categories for further information on the timeline for submissions. Nominations will be kept on file for a period of three years.
Please note: Nominees must be an alumnus or alumni of the University, with the exception of the Sexton Award, the Putz Award, and the Volunteer of the Year award.
