Awards CommitteeThe Awards Committee identifies who among alumni should be given certain awards and honors bestowed by the association. In addition, the Awards Committee considers whether other awards or honors are appropriate to institute, and may recommend any such additional awards or honors to the board for its consideration. The Awards Committee also periodically checks that any awards given in the name of the association to students (such as athletic blazers or essay prizes) are meaningful and fairly balanced between the campuses.
