Every year during Commencement, the University of Illinois Alumni Association honors outstanding Illinois alumni with the Alumni Achievement, Alumni Humanitarian and Distinguished Service awards. Other awards are presented throughout the year. We invite you to learn more about these awards and to nominate someone deserving today.
