Outstanding Alumni

The Outstanding Alumni Award is the highest honor the University bestows upon a former student. It is given in recognition of outstanding professional and personal achievements that have brought honor and distinction to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. One must be a graduate or former student having attended no less than 10 years ago. It is traditionally awarded annually in the fall.
