It’s in storytelling that we find connection and meaning. We want to share the sense of pride we feel when we hear about UFV alumni doing amazing things in the community and the world. We want to acknowledge the noteworthy accomplishments and tell the stories that motivate us and bring us together. We’re all capable of going out and making a difference—sometimes it helps to have a little inspiration.
We recognize significant contributions of our alumni in a few different ways.
Distinguished Alumni Awards
The Distinguished Alumni Award and the Young Distinguished Alumni Award single out and honour the achievements of outstanding alumni, whether in their career, education or service to the community. The Young Distinguished Alumni Award is reserved for an outstanding achiever of 35 years of age or younger. Recipients are nominated by members of the community. Read the stories of our awards winners from 2016, Shannon Thiesen and Gary Bass. Nominations are now open for the 2017 awards.
