Each year during Alumni Day, the Governing Board of the CAP Alumni Society recognizes the professional accomplishments of alumni with two categories of awards.
The Distinguished Alumnus Award is given to selected alumni with 15 years or more of professional experience who have achieved positions of influence and national or international reputations in their fields. In addition, Awards of Outstanding Achievement are made to selected alumni who are making outstanding contributions to their profession and to society.
There is a two part process to the alumni award program. Nominations may be made by any alumni on behalf of another or for themselves. This year, nominations are due to Lori Pence in the Dean’s Office of CAP by March 30, 2012.
All nominees will be notified in writing and are then invited to electronically submit a final award application which is a comprehensive summary of their professional accomplishments, letters of support and a letter highlighting their professional contributions. Final submissions for nominees are due May 30, 2012, for review by a jury of CAP alumni peers.
Winners will be notified in July 2012 and the awards presented on October 26, 2012 at the Alumni Awards Banquet.
The College of Architecture and Planning will host the Annual Alumni Awards Banquet on Friday, October 26, 2012, at the Alumni Center. Four exceptional alumni, along with the Charles M. Sappenfield Award of Excellence recipient, will be honored during the dinner. The cost to attend the dinner is $27 per person.
