Alumni Awards Nominations Open

Alumni Awards are one of the ways that the Alumni Board and the College honor individuals in our community exemplifying Macalester values of internationalism, multiculturalism, and service to society. We encourage alumni from across the decades and the world to nominate friends and classmates for these meaningful awards.

Deadline for submissions is Monday, August 28, 2017

What are the Macalester Alumni Awards?


Alumni Awards are one way by which the Macalester community comes together to honor alumni who best exemplify our college's values. The awards have been given annually to Macalester alumni since 1949 and the tradition continues today under the leadership of the Alumni Board Nominations Committee. All alumni, staff, faculty, and friends of the college are welcome to submit nominations.


Alumni nominations are accepted for four categories of alumni awards: the Catharine Lealtad ’15 Service to Society Award, the Charles J. Turck Global Citizen Award, the Distinguished Citizen Award, and the Young Alumni Award. The Alumni Service Award recipient is nominated by Macalester staff. 

Every year, we count on you to tell us which alumni deserve to be honored by Macalester with an Alumni Award. To submit a nomination, view the description, criteria, and nomination form for each of the categories online here.
