Help us recognize UT’s top graduates!
Each year the UT Knoxville Alumni Board of Directors requests nominations for the annual alumni awards. Last year was only the second year of this program, and many stellar UT alumni were recognized for their achievements.
Nominations are accepted from alumni, staff, students, faculty, administrators, and any interested parties that have the forward progress of the University of Tennessee in mind.
The award categories in which we are seeking nominations are:
Distinguished Alumnus/a Award
Dedicated to the spirit of the Volunteer, this award is the single highest alumni award given and is reserved for alumni who have excelled at the national or international level. The purpose of this award is to recognize an alumnus or alumna of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, who has attained extraordinary distinction and success in his or her field of endeavor, and whose achievements have brought credit to the University of Tennessee and benefit to his or her fellow citizens.
Alumni Promise Award
The Alumni Promise Award recognizes alumni under the age of 40 who have demonstrated distinctive achievement in a career, civic involvement, or both. This award is presented to acknowledge those who are making an early mark in their careers.
Alumni Service Award
The Alumni Service Award recognizes exceptional service or long-term continuous service and/or leadership to the University of Tennessee. It is designed to publicly acknowledge those individuals or organizations who have given significant amounts of time, talent, or resources to the university over an extended period of time.
