Alumni Awards

The University of Portland mission centers on teaching and learning, faith and formation, service and leadership. Through our annual Alumni Awards, we honor those individuals who embody this mission in their life and work, and demonstrate the power of the University to prepare people who respond to the needs of the world and its human family. 

Help us recognize our alumni!

You are invited to help identify those alumni who should be recognized for making outstanding contributions to their professional fields, for their dedication to volunteer endeavors, and for their ongoing support of the University and its mission.

Nominate a Pilot

Whether it’s a person who has shown great promise early in their career, someone who embodies the University’s mission of service and leadership, or an individual who has built a sustained record of accomplishment and community contribution across their lifetime, we’d like to know about them. 

If your nominee is selected as a finalist, members of the National Alumni Board will contact you to obtain more information about the individual you have recommended. Honorees will be chosen in the fall, and will be celebrated at the President's Alumni Awards Gala during Alumni Reunion Weekend.
