In compliance with the university's newly established policies and procedures to contain the spread of COVID-19, the Alumni Award Dinner on April 20, 2020, is canceled. The Awards Committee will proceed with the selection of the award recipients. Further consideration of when and how the recipients will be awarded will be shared once a decision is made. We take the health of our students, faculty, staff, alumni and their families seriously and work diligently to provide a safe environment for everyone.
