Awards and Recognition

The Fairfield University Alumni Association realizes the importance of recognizing students, alumni, athletes, and professors for their amazing contributions to the Fairfield University community.

The Alumni Association invites you to view the comprehensive lists of award recipients on the following web pages:

Fairfield Awards Dinner

In 1988, the Multicultural Scholarship Fund became the beneficiary of Fairfield University's annual Awards Dinner and since, more than $9 million dollars has been raised for the endowment. Last year, the University gave over $432,000 in scholarships to students of color. The Alumni Association began recognizing alumni and staff in 1960 for their professional achievements and service to the institution.

Athletic Hall of Fame

The Alumni Association Athletic Hall of Fame was established in 1982 to honor those alumni who achieved excellence and distinguished themselves in Fairfield's athletic programs. Each year inductees are selected through a nomination process by the Athletic Hall of Fame Committee and honored at a special induction ceremony.

Special Team Recognition

Since 1993 the Alumni Association has given special recognition to various teams and clubs that achieved a milestone in a particular season.

Student Awards

Every spring Fairfield University presents outstanding full time undergraduate seniors with the St. Ignatius Loyola Medal, William J. Kramer '60 Humanitarian Award, and Student Achievement Awards. Beginning in 2009, an outstanding graduate student is also recognized with the graduate Loyola Medal. The Fairfield University Alumni Association is proud to award the St. Ignatius Loyola Medals to our student recipients.

Both Loyola medalists are formally recognized by University President Mark R. Nemec, PhD, at their respective Commencement ceremonies in May.

Board Committees

All members of our Alumni Association Board of Directors also serve on one or more committees within the Alumn Association. Their work on these committees helps to select new board members, work with the Office of Alumni Relations to plan alumni events and activities, monitor and update the Assocation bylaws, help market the University's alumni programs, assist with Admissions efforts, and more!

Alumni have the opportunity to join committees in a non-voting capacity without serving on the Association's Board of Directors. If you wish to get involved, please email Alumni Association President, John Pagano, MS'06, MBA'04.
