Distinguished Alumni Awards
CUPHSONAA began the Distinguished Alumni Awards program in 1977 to honor alumni who have distinguished themselves in one of the award categories. Since 2012, CUPHSONAA has bestowed Distinguished Alumni Awards jointly with the Columbia University School of Nursing Alumni Association (CUSONAA). The awards are presented annually at the Alumni Reunion each spring.
Nominations may be submitted online using the nomination form. The nomination period is from November 1 to January 31.
Depending on the award category, candidates may be an alumnus, non-alumni, or an organization. Once the nomination packet has been submitted, the materials will not be returned to the nominator. Nominators whose candidates were not selected in the previous year are invited to resubmit their candidate(s) and update their materials in subsequent years.
Distinguished Alumni Awards Committee
The Distinguished Alumni Awards (DAA) Committee reviews all nominations and determines each year's award recipients. The committee is composed of alumni chosen by both CUPHSONAA and CUSONAA.
