The accomplishments of the members of Nipissing University's global community of alumni (34,000) represent an inspiring account of positive social, cultural, and economic change in the world. Our Alumni Achievement Awards give us the chance to recognize those actions and share the stories of our vibrant and influential community.

Adjudication is overseen by the Nipissing University Alumni Advisory Board Alumni Awards Selection Committee, including the review of all nomination materials and selection of the recipients.

The Committee may choose to move a nominee into a different category, or not to roll the nomination forward (in which case the nominator will be informed).
