The Alumni/ae Council, on behalf of the Alumni/ae Association, carefully studies all the information received.
Its selection is recommended to the Board of Trustees, which has the final approval of the candidate. In May of 2002, the Council voted that one alumnus/a be honored annually. Please be advised that the Council can only review the materials sent to them. They will make a decision based on those materials alone.
