The Distinguished Alumni Award has been established to honor and recognize UW-Fond du Lac alumni who have attained notable achievement in their career field, demonstrated philanthropic or public service activity in support of the community or provided inspiration to others. Meet our Distinguished Alumni Award recipients.
The Distinguished Alumni Award recipient is honored with a personalized brick in the Foundation Celebration Walk and will have their name engraved on a perpetual plaque displayed in the University Center Commons. The award will be presented at the donor and scholarship recognition reception at UW-Fond du Lac in the fall. The recipient must be able to attend this event. Current nominations are being accepted until June 9, 2017, for presentation of the 2017 award at the Scholarship & Donor Recognition Reception in the evening on Wednesday, September 27, 2017.
The Distinguished Alumni Award recipient will be selected by a committee appointed by the UW-Fond du Lac Foundation. Current UW-Fond du Lac Foundation Board members and UW-Fond du Lac faculty and staff are not eligible to receive the award. Nominees must have attended UW-Fond du Lac at anytime since the campus opened in 1968 for at least two semesters.
