Distinguished Alumna/us Award Call for Nominations (Deadline extended to 9/23)

The Committee on Honorary Degrees and Special Awards invites your nominations for Distinguished Alumna and Alumnus Awards to be presented at the October 12, 2014, University Day ceremony. Please include appropriate biographical information and a statement in support of the nomination. Your statement should demonstrate that the nominee has made an outstanding contribution to humanity in any walk of life. Nominators often seek supporting letters from others, but the content of such letters, not their number, is what counts. Five awards will be given.

Nominees must be alumni of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This includes all persons who were registered for at least one full academic year as a student in residence in any college or school of the University. In general, anyone listed in the General Alumni Association’s Alumni Directory is eligible except members of the University faculty, staff, and administration. They become eligible two years after separation from the University.

For more information about the award, including directions on submitting a nomination online, visit the Distinguished Alumnus and Alumna Award webpage.

Deadline: September 20, 2013.  Extended to September 23, 2013.
