Honorary Alumni Nominations Information

The William & Mary Alumni Association grants the status of Honorary Alumni to non-alumni with a distinguished record of service, support, advocacy and commitment on behalf of William & Mary and its schools, departments, units, organizations and boards. Throughout the year, the Alumni Association accepts letters of nomination for this distinguished award.

To nominate someone for Honorary Alumnus or Honorary Alumna status, submit a letter of nomination, or enter online, that details the length, scope and unusual nature of involvement or support of the individual you believe deserves this award. Describe his or her visible and consistent involvement, loyalty, and affection for W&M, e.g., active participation, generosity, leadership, financial assistance, prominent advocacy and counsel.

*Please note that retired faculty and staff are normally accorded status as Associate Alumni and therefore Honorary Alumnus is not warranted. 

To mail in a nomination send letters to:
The William & Mary Alumni Association
ATTN: Honorary Alumni Award
P.O. Box 2100
Williamsburg VA 23187-2100.  

Nominations are due no later than November 15 and acted upon during the board’s winter meeting in February.
