image002In order to better highlight this year’s 50th anniversary of the UNT Alumni Awards, the UNT Alumni Association has announced that the awards program will be moved to fall 2015, coinciding with festivities planned for Homecoming and the university’s 125th celebration. The ceremony was traditionally held in the spring.

“The Alumni Awards are among the highest honors the university bestows,” Rob McInturf, executive director of the UNT Alumni Association, said. “We want to ensure the accomplishments of our alumni are highlighted during a time that they can receive the most recognition from their peers while still allowing us the opportunity to celebrate the impact they are making in their communities and around the world.”

The UNT Alumni Awards showcase the caliber of the university’s alumni and celebrate the depth and breadth of their professional accomplishments and service to the community. Awards presented will include:

  • Distinguished Alumni Award—First presented in 1965, this is the UNT Alumni Association’s most prestigious award. It is given to individuals who have achieved prominence in their profession, thereby reflecting a positive image of UNT.
  • Distinguished Young Alumni Award—Created in 2011 in the image of the Distinguished Alumni Award, this honor was established to recognize young alumni under the age of 40 for distinguished career achievement.
  • Outstanding Alumni Service Award—Originally presented in 1974, this award honors individuals who have provided exceptional volunteer service to UNT.
  • Ulys Knight Spirit Award—Presented since 1975, this award is given to any individual or group that has made noteworthy efforts to sustain spirit among the UNT family.
  • Generations of Excellence Award—Presented for the first time in 2013, this is given to a family for extraordinary service to and advocacy for UNT through multiple generations.

The deadline to nominate is April 1. Nomination forms can be found online at
