Alumni Awards

We're proud to recognize the achievements of our alumni with four types of annual awards. Information on nominations will be posted on this page in the future.

The Distinguished Alumni Award

Since 1982, Lewis has recognized Lewis alumni who have demonstrated ideals consistent with the mission of the University, while distinguishing themselves in their chosen professions, taking leadership roles within their communities, and accomplishing significant achievements in their personal and civic lives. This award is bestowed upon one alumnus/a each year who has demonstrated a significant impact in their career field, community, or with Lewis University.

Alumni Achievement Award 

Started in 1992, this award shares many of the same criteria as the Distinguished Alumni Award, except that there can be multiple recipients representing various disciplines and career fields. These awards are bestowed upon alumni who have made an impact in their field, community, and Lewis University. The Alumni Achievement Awards recognize alumni who have achieved professional or personal success since receiving their degree from Lewis University.

Father Brennan Service with Honor Award: Service to Church

This honor will be given to an alumnus/a who has served his or her church or parish either through a significant and distinguished project, or a lifetime of dedication.
