The Distinguished Alumni Award recognizes School of Social Work alumni whose achievements exemplify the values of the School of Social Work and who have made an exceptional impact on the profession, the community and/or Social Work education. The award is presented annually to three alumni during the university-wide reunion weekend each fall.*
A volunteer committee of three to five members of the SSW Alumni Board of Governors is charged with overseeing the nomination and selection process for this Award. The committee will review all nominations and make a recommendation to the Dean of the School of Social Work.
The 2018 awardees will be recognized by the Dean at the School of Social Work All Class Reunion Lunch on Friday, October 5, 2018. They will also be featured in the SSW Ongoing publication and on the School's website.
* Selected award recipients who are unable to attend the Reunion Luncheon will be carried over to the following year and if they are able to attend will be presented with the award at that time.
Please contact the Office of Development and Alumni Relations at firstname.lastname@example.org or (734) 763-6886 with any questions.
