Award recipients have achieved distinctive and notable accomplishments in at least one of three categories:

Professional/Career

Distinguished alumni in this category are recognized for their accomplishments in their chosen profession. Criteria for measuring achievements includes:

  • Recognized leadership qualities
  • Impact on and success in the field
  • Dedication to chosen field (includes volunteering, educational outreach, etc.)
  • Recognition within the field
  • Length of professional service
  • Degrees earned
  • Publications, research, etc. within the field (if applicable)

Community Service

This category honors alumni whose voluntary leadership, dedication and contribution of time, effort and enthusiasm improve the quality of life in their neighborhood, community, city, state or nation. The accomplishments in community service are especially enduring in value because their work results from personal commitment rather than a desire for personal gain.

University Service

Alumni honored in this category have a true devotion to UCO and a lasting love for the university, as demonstrated through a substantial contribution of time and resources.
