The Alumni Hall of Fame Award is bestowed annually upon a University of Washington Communication graduate. Hall of Fame members are those who have “made a difference” in an important way: as prominent journalists (e.g., winners of a Pulitzer Prize), public servants, celebrities who have used their influence to help others, leaders in their field, devoted mentors to our students, and academic stand-outs. They are people who did more than just have a job or career – they did it with great success and often with great dedication to others.
Before making a nomination, please read the selection guidelines below:
The Alumni Hall of Fame Award is designated for an outstanding alumnus or alumna, distinguished for service and achievement over a period of years since graduation from the University of Washington.
The selection committee is not just looking for a list of honors by the nominee. We’re also looking for narratives that paint a picture of what was accomplished, how they accomplished it, and what industry community impacts they have made. The selection committee reserves the right to conduct additional research on a nominee when more information is needed. Questions considered by the committee are detailed below.
To nominate a Hall of Fame candidate for consideration, please submit this form by 5pm on Aug 21, 2022. Any supporting documents not included in the nomination form can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to the following address:

The Alumni Hall of Fame Selection Committee consists of all living members of the Alumni Hall of Fame, department faculty, and the department Chair and Alumni Outreach Manager. Selected honorees will be nominated the summer preceding the ceremony, typically scheduled to occur the following Autumn.
