UW Alumni Association

Distinguished Alumni & Medallion Service Awards

The University of Wyoming Alumni Association annually recognizes the university’s alumni who are distinguished in their business, profession, or life’s work; are persons of integrity, stature, and demonstrated ability; reflect upon and realize the importance of their UW education. UW has many outstanding alumni and this program is one way to recognize the honor they bring to the institution through their accomplishments.  

UWAA recognizes honorees during Homecoming weekend through activities that celebrate their accomplishments. It is a special time for distinguished alumni, in which they can both receive recognition and give back to UW.
