Honors and Awards

Each year, the Drexel University Alumni Association recognizes alumni for outstanding achievements in their profession, in the community and within the University. The Alumni Association also recognizes outstanding students for demonstrated leadership throughout their time at Drexel.


All members of the University community are invited to participate in the Alumni Awards process by nominating exceptional alumni and students for consideration by the Honors and Awards Committee of the Alumni Association Board of Governors.

The Honors and Awards Committee of the Drexel University Alumni Association Board of Governors will review and evaluate thoroughly all the nominations received, and will notify selected award recipients. The Committee takes pride in reviewing all of the many personal and professional accomplishments of our Drexel alumni.  With such a large number of qualified nominations, the selection process can be very competitive.

The 2015 call for nominations concluded on Friday, December 5, 2014, but Alumni Association Award nomiantions are accepted year-round.
