Awards

Celebrate the contributions and achievements of Dornsife alumni who have had distinguished careers in the field of public health.

Each year, the Office of Student Affairs requests nominations from the Dornsife community via social media and the Alumni newsletter to recognize the accomplishments of our outstanding alumni.

The Alumni Awards recognize outstanding alumni in two categories: recent and distinguished. The Recent Alumni Award highlights graduates who have completed their degree at Dornsife School of Public Health (DSPH) within the last 5 years. The Distinguished Alumni Award highlights alumni who have made significant contributions throughout their career.

Materials for nomination include a completed form via Qualtrics and a brief paragraph (200 words or less) explaining why you would like to nominate this alum. The link for nomination will be included in the Alumni newsletter announcement. All are encouraged to nominate individuals and self-nominate. Please note that individuals may be nominated for multiple awards, but can only receive one award per year.
