Honored Alumni Awards

The George Fox University mission is to prepare students spiritually, academically and professionally to think with clarity, act with integrity, and serve with passion. The alumni awards are an opportunity for the community and the alumni association to honor alumni who are exceptional in their fulfillment of the mission.

The community is invited and encouraged to nominate alumni who should be recognized for their contributions through service, professional accomplishment, or their dedication to the ongoing mission of the university.

Honoring Our Alumni

In celebration of these achievements, the university community gathers to present awards to individuals who are making a positive impact in the world. The next awards presentation will be during Homecoming 2022.
