2017 Alumni Award Recipients

Each year, the Alumni Leadership Council recognizes alumni based on their academic, professional, personal and community contributions. This is a great way to honor those whose accomplishments can inspire others. You worked hard to earn your degree and deserve to have your accomplishments recognized. Because Excelsior alumni are spread out all over the world, it's unlikely that a graduate will be nominated for an award by someone else. That's why we rely on you to help build our alumni community by letting us know how you've used your degree to advance your career and improve your life. Apply for an alumni award now!
