The Honors Program hopes to recognize an especially distinguished alumni or friend each year. In this way, we thank individuals one by one but also, through them, the larger community of supporters who promote honors education here and beyond the campus. The award will be made during the Honors Commendation Ceremony held in May the evening before University Graduation. Awardees may give a public talk and each receives a memento and certificate signed by the Honors Director and University President.
