Annual Distinguished Awards

The College of Liberal Arts and Science's Distinguished Awards are presented to outstanding members of the College community who are celebrated for their prominence in their professional field or through their civic, cultural or charitable service, or who have made major contributions to the college and its reputation for excellence. They were established following the College's 50th anniversary in 2009.

Each year, a wide range of nominations are submitted by students, alumni, staff, faculty and friends of the College. Nomination materials are evaluated by a selection committee comprised of alumni, faculty and staff who are appointed by Acting Dean Ledgerwood. 

All awardees are invited to the NIU campus, where they receive their awards at an annual celebration held in Barsema Alumni and Visitors Center.
