The Alumni Association is seeking nominations

The Loyola University New Orleans Alumni Association is seeking nominations for the 2014 Adjutor Hominum Award, the College Alumnus/a of the Year Awards, and the Young Alumnus/a of the Year Award. All nominations are due into the Office of Alumni Relations by Friday, March 7, 2014. Click here to access the Alumni Award Nomination Form.

The Adjutor Hominum Award is the highest award bestowed by the Alumni Association that honors an outstanding graduate of Loyola whose life exemplifies the values and philosophy of Jesuit education—namely moral character, service to humanity, and unquestionable integrity.

As you consider making a nomination for the Adjutor Hominum Award, please recall that this award is distinctive as Loyola honors faculty, staff, and community leaders, respectively, with the following awards:

• The Dux Academicus Award is presented annually in recognition of an outstanding member of the faculty;
• The Coadjutor Optimus Awards are given annually to outstanding members of the university staff;
• The Integritas Vitae Award is presented to a local, national, or world leader who has demonstrated the values and philosophy of a Jesuit education.

The College Alumnus/a of the Year Award honors one alumnus or alumna from each of Loyola’s four undergraduate colleges: Business, Humanities and Natural Sciences, Music and Fine Arts, and Social Sciences. The alumnus or alumna must exemplify those characteristics that Loyola seeks to form in its graduates. They must also demonstrate a strong commitment to their community and to Loyola, and they must be recognized for their accomplishments in their profession or other areas of endeavor.

The Young Alumnus/a of the Year Award honors one young alumnus or alumna from the university. This individual must have graduated from Loyola within the last 10 years. The young alumnus or alumna must exemplify the same criteria mentioned above.
