The Buffalo State College Alumni Association welcomes nominations from faculty and staff for the 2009 Distinguished Alumnus Award, presented annually at Commencement. This prestigious honor is awarded to alumni who meet the following criteria: (1) significant achievement and recognition in their field or profession; (2) dedication to community service, civic affairs, and volunteerism on a local, state, national, or international level; and (3) demonstrated ongoing support for and loyalty to the college and its mission.

A maximum of three awards may be presented each year (no posthumous awards are given). All nominations are active for three years, including the initial year of nomination. Recipients must also be able to attend the Commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 16, 2009.
