WSU Alumni Awards Nomination Form

Awards & Criteria Past Award Recipients Awards RSVP

Each year since 1955, the WSU Alumni Association has honored individuals by recognizing personal and professional achievement as well as service to the university and society. We encourage everyone to nominate an individual for an alumni award. All nominees, as well as their nominators, will be kept confidential.

Once an individual has been honored, he or she may not be considered again for the same award.  Individuals who have never won may be nominated for one of more awards at any given time. Current membership in the WSU Alumni Association is required for alumnus/alumna awards. The accomplishments of award winners are celebrated at an annual banquet.  Honorees will be featured in The Shocker alumni magazine.

The Achievement Award
established in 1955, is the highest honor given to a Wichita State alumnus or alumna by the Alumni Association.

The Recognition Award
is presented to alumni or faculty and friends of the University for particular service to WSU.

The Laura M. Cross Distinguished Service Award

The Young Alumnus/Alumna Award
