Each year Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) honors at least two graduates from among the more than 19,500 EMU alumni who are sharing Christ’s love around the world in their every day lives.
Nominations for the 2013 awards are due March 1, 2013. Award recipients will be honored at Homecoming and Family Weekend, Oct. 11-13, 2013. Nominations for either the Distinguished Service Award or Alumnus/a of the Year Award are made by EMU alumni or current members of the EMU community and are reviewed by the alumni association.
EMU will also recognize an “Outstanding Young Alum,” to be presented for the first time in 2013. A young alum is someone who has graduated from EMU within the last 15 years.
A Distinguished Service nominee must be an alumnus/a of EMU and must have made an outstanding contribution to EMU, the church or community over a long period of time.
To be awarded the Alumnus/a of the Year, a nominee must be graduates of EMU (or attended at least two years) and must have made a significant contribution or achievement in their profession, church, community or family in recent years.
