Alumni Awards


A wonderful tradition at Salve Regina, alumni awards foster lasting connections with alumni while also recognizing their lifetime achievements. You may recommend a deserving graduate of Salve Regina at any time during the year by submitting an online nomination. Career success, community achievement, alumni connectedness and support of Salve Regina are all taken into consideration. Candidates are reviewed twice a year by a peer committee.
