Centennial Distinguished Alumni Award

As we celebrate 100 years of social work at the University of Michigan, the Alumni Board of Governors is seeking nominations to honor nine outstanding School of Social Work alumni with the Centennial Distinguished Alumni Award. Do you know a fellow graduate who you believe especially exemplifies all the values we support? Someone who is a leader? A groundbreaker? A campaigner for social justice?

Please help the Alumni Board of Governors identify graduates of the School of Social Work who have maintained the highest standards in their chosen professions and who represent outstanding achievement, excellence and commitment to service. Nominees should serve as inspiration to the Michigan School of Social Work community.
