The Robinson Alumni Awards acknowledge extraordinary individuals who have distinguished themselves through career achievement and community service. An awards program held each fall recognizes that year’s recipients.
Eligibility Requirements: The recipients of the Robinson Alumni Awards must be graduates of the J. Mack Robinson College of Business—except in the case of nominations for “Honorary Alumni” awards.
Robinson Distinguished Alumnus (Alumna) Award
The Robinson College of Business Distinguished Alumnus/na Award recognizes alumni who have distinguished themselves in the field of business and have made outstanding contributions to the business profession. Candidates are highly placed executives and are actively involved in the business community.
Robinson Outstanding Young Alumnus (Alumna) Award
The Robinson College of Business Outstanding Young Alumnus/na Award recognizes alumni who have distinguished themselves through professional practice and/or service to the Robinson College of Business, or society-at-large. They are on the “fast track” and have made rapid advancement within their organizations and have been recognized for early professional achievements by others within their profession, field or organization. They are considered future leaders in their profession.
Alumni Award for Service to Robinson College
This award is designed to honor those alumni whose dedication and volunteer service have significantly enriched the substance of the Robinson College. Their efforts have added depth and stature to the reputation of the College. In the occasional instance where the recipients are (or have been) College employees, they shall have extraordinary service records—well above and beyond the job description of the position held.
Robinson Honorary Alumnus/Alumna
In some years, the selection committee may choose to honor special individuals with the Honorary Alumnus/Alumna Award. The recipients, while not Robinson graduates, will be chosen for their unique contributions that singularly qualify them for special recognition as members of the Robinson College community and family.
