Lindenwood University has a long history of presenting alumni awards as a way to celebrate and honor the accomplishments of our alumni, their dedication to the university, and to the community. Nominations provide an avenue for all alumni, faculty, staff, and students to state why a particular alumnus would be a fit for one of these awards. Recipients are dependent on the nominations submitted and may not be awarded every year.
Alumni Merit Award
The Alumni Merit Award recognizes alumni who have enhanced the prestige of Lindenwood University by virtue of their character, integrity, career, and personal accomplishments. Traditionally, the medal has not been given in recognition of a single remarkable achievement but has been reserved for those alumni who have attained and maintained extremely high stations in their chosen fields of endeavor and in their service to society.
Alumni Service Award
The Alumni Service Award recognizes Lindenwood University alumni who have demonstrated outstanding service and leadership to Lindenwood University – whether it be through volunteerism, philanthropy, recruiting, or any other means. Recipients have given significant time, talent, and effort to support the mission of Lindenwood University.
Young Alumni Award
The Young Alumni Award recognizes the accomplishments of Lindenwood University alumni who graduated in the last 10 years. Recipients are up-and-coming talents and have demonstrated outstanding promise for contributions to Lindenwood and the greater community. Recipients have been active with events within the Alumni Association, networking opportunities, fundraising, and student recruitment.
