Dear Colleagues,

As chair of the Committee on Honorary Degrees and Special Awards, I am requesting nominations for Distinguished Alumna and Alumnus Awards to be presented at the 2022 University Day celebration. Nominations must be submitted online by Monday, Nov. 22, 2021.

These awards recognize Carolina alumni who have made outstanding contributions to humanity in any walk of life. The awards committee seeks a broad and diverse pool of extraordinary candidates, including individuals from underrepresented groups and a variety of disciplines, from which to make its selections.

Full information about this award, including criteria, the names of past recipients and a link to the online submission form, is available at this link. Please direct any questions to the Office of Faculty Governance at or 919-962-2146.

I encourage you to take a moment to celebrate one of our many notable and talented alums in this way.
