The UCCS Alumni & Friends Award is given annually to individuals or organizations who have demonstrated a significant contribution to further the growth and development of the University of Colorado Colorado Springs. The criteria for the Alumni and Friends Award are as follows:
- The candidate does not have to be an alumnus
- The candidate can be an individual, organization, business or agency
- The award is not open to current university staff, students or faculty, since these groups already have their own awards programs established
- The candidate must have demonstrated a very strong commitment to our campus
Recipients are recognized at the annual Campus Awards Ceremony in May.
