Homecoming Alumni Awards


Each year at Homecoming, the Alumni Association presents three distinct and unique awards to members of the Benedictine University Alumni family.

Distinguished Alumni Award

In recognition of outstanding achievement in a career field or personal endeavor.

Alumni Service Award

In gratitude for current or past service to the University and/or the Alumni Association. The award will be presented to an alumnus/a who has made significant donations of time and talent to Benedictine University.

Benedictine Spirit Award

Presented to an alumnus/a who exemplified the Benedictine values of service, hospitality, and dedication to a given cause in their personal and/or professional life.

Award Details

All awards are open to alumni in good standing who have completed a minimum of 48 credit hours at St. Procopius College, Illinois Benedictine College, or Benedictine University.  All award nominees must have graduated or last attended Benedictine at least ten years ago.

Nominations will be evaluated by a committee of the Board of Directors of the Alumni Association, which will make recommendations to the Alumni Association President and the Executive Director of University Development for final selection and notification.

We are currently accepting nominations for Homecoming 2016. Finalists who not selected in a given year will be automatically submitted for consideration the following year. A permanent display of winners is in the Krasa Student Center.
