Alumni Awards

Our stars of yesterday … are still shining brightly today!

AU’s alumni ambassadors are blazing trails in science and technology — or in nursing, archeology, counseling — or as creators of digitally enhanced education models of the future. Our celebrated alumni are committed to improving themselves and the lives of those with whom they connect, each day – wherever they live and work, in their communities, in their families, in Canada and around the world.

Our alumni say everything about the future of an education. Each year, we honour four outstanding AU ambassadors who are living their lives out loud, providing hope, insight, inspiration and encouragement - in their communities, in their work spaces, and in the hearts and minds of many.

Nominate an outstanding AU graduate who is making a difference in their community in one of four categories:
