Recognizing UFV's outstanding alumni

The University of the Fraser Valley has thousands of alumni living and working locally and around the world.

Once again, it’s time recognize alumni of distinction by nominating them for a UFV Distinguished Alumni award.

New this year is a category for young alumni.

“As we are still a fairly young university, many of our alumni are under the age of 35 and haven’t yet had careers that stretch into the decades,” notes UFV alumni manager Nancy Armitage. “But that doesn’t mean they haven’t had time for significant achievements.”

The traditional Distinguished Alumni Award will be conferred upon a graduate of the institution who has achieved outstanding distinction in career, educational achievement, or community service.

The second award, the Young Distinguished Alumni award, will go to a graduate of UFV who is 34 years of age or younger and who has achieved outstanding distinction in the above categories. Both awards recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of exceptional alumni.

Nominators may be UFV employees, students, alumni, board members, or members of the community.

Nomination application and criteria are available here: www.ufv.ca/DAA . Deadline is April 1.
