Claremont Graduate University’s Office of Alumni Engagement honors the university’s most extraordinary alumni with two prestigious annual awards.

The Distinguished Alumni Award is bestowed upon CGU graduates who have made extraordinary contributions in their academic or professional fields.

The Distinguished Alumni Service Award honors CGU alumni who have achieved recognition for their philanthropic or volunteer service to the university and to society.

Nominations for the alumni awards are accepted year-round, and are reviewed in the fall, with recipients being announced in the spring. Each year, prior to commencement, the award recipients are invited to an awards ceremony at the President’s house.
