UD Alumni Association accepting nominations for Wall of Fame and Outstanding Alumni Awards

Know a Blue Hen who is knocking it out of the park professionally or through volunteerism — or both? Help us recognize their efforts. The University of Delaware Alumni Association (UDAA) is accepting nominations for its Alumni Wall of Fame Awards and Outstanding Alumni Awards through Feb. 23, 2024.

Recipients will be honored during a ceremony this spring and their names will be engraved on the walls of the Alumni Circle, located between the Carpenter Sports Building (Little Bob) and Old College.

UDAA Alumni Wall of Fame

In recognition of the many notable achievements of its alumni, the University and the UDAA established the Alumni Wall of Fame in 1984. The Wall of Fame recognizes UD graduates with outstanding professional and public service achievements who: 

  • Have made significant contributions to further their profession

  • Have made significant career accomplishments and achievements

  • Have maintained a relationship with UD

  • Are involved in their community

UDAA Outstanding Alumni Awards

For more than 50 years, the Outstanding Alumni Awards have been presented to graduates in recognition of their exemplary work on behalf of the University and/or the UDAA. Past recipients have been honored for their role in Alumni Association activities and programs, leadership roles and dedication to reunions, college or department alumni activities, service on advisory boards, University steering committees and department steering committees, to name a few. 

Presented annually, criteria for UDAA Outstanding Alumni Awards includes the following: 

  • Service to the University may be a single act or it may be a long record of participation and involvement

  • Business and professional accomplishments, community service, and other factors are considered secondary to University and/or Alumni Association volunteer service
