The Office of International and Border Programs is helping the Alumni Association identify 2015 Distinguished International Alumni award nominees.
Please see details below.
Homecoming 2015 is just around the corner, which means it is time to nominate Aggies for the New Mexico State University Alumni Association Distinguished Alumni Awards, the Distinguished International Alumni Award, and the James F. Cole Memorial Award for Service. Nominations for the awards are gathered through an open nomination process. Students, alumni, friends, family members, faculty members, staff members, department heads, and deans, may submit nominations.
The NMSU Alumni Association would be glad to receive your award nominations. The NMSU Alumni Association Scholarship and Awards Committee will select the recipients according to award criteria. Before final selection is determined, the committee will provide a list of all nominees to each college dean for additional input. While the deans do not actually select the recipients, the Scholarship and Awards Committee values your nominations and feedback.
Since the award’s inception in 1956, the NMSU Alumni Association has recognized nearly 400 alumni as standouts in Agricultural, Consumer & Environmental Sciences; Arts & Sciences; Business; Education; Engineering; and Health & Social Services. Each award carries on the tradition of excellence NMSU has upheld throughout the years, and each Distinguished Alumni is selected based on their personal accomplishments, professional achievements, and their support for the advancement of NMSU.
Nine Distinguished Alumni awards, one for each of the six undergraduate colleges (three awards for the College of Arts & Sciences), and one for an international alumnus, as well as the James F. Cole Memorial Award for Service, will be presented at the Distinguished Alumni Dinner during the annual Homecoming festivities.
A nomination form and the criteria for each award are attached for your convenience. You may nominate several alumni for the awards. Please submit your nominations by Friday, May 1, 2015. You may submit online nomination forms at http://alum.nmsu.edu/DAnomination2015 (Distinguished Alumni Award) or http://alum.nmsu.edu/JFCnomination2015 (James F. Cole Award) or submit a hard-copy nomination forms to the NMSU Alumni Association at the Alumni and Visitor’s Center, 775 College Drive.
We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you at the 2015 Homecoming award celebration.
