Awards and Recognition

UW Oshkosh takes pride in the success of our graduates in their professional careers and through their civic involvement. Each year during homecoming, the Alumni Association recognizes these extraordinary individuals with:

  • The Distinguished Alumni Award – the highest award that alumni can receive from the association. It is awarded to individuals who are active in their professional fields and are widely recognized for their career accomplishments.
  • The Outstanding Young Alumni Award – awarded to alumni who have graduated within the last 15 years. Selection is based on professional and civic accomplishments and future promise.
