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.
