Seeking Nominations for the IU School of Dentistry Alumni Association 2014 Award

Each year the Indiana University School of Dentistry Alumni Association recognizes and honors a few individuals who have made sustained contributions to the Indiana University of Dentistry and the dental profession. I invite you and/or component society to nominate a member(s) who has gone above and beyond the profession.

Nominees may include outstanding graduates and/or supporters of the Indiana University School of Dentistry who are not IUSD graduates, but have given much to the field of dentistry. Please keep in mind that these awards highlight their contributions to the field of dentistry as well as their contributions to their community, state or nation.

Here’s your opportunity to nominate your co-workers and other colleagues who deserve recognition for the difference they’ve made. You may nominate one or more people in each category. You may also choose to nominate yourself. The awards include:

  • Distinguished Alumnus Award (presented to an IU School of Dentistry graduate for outstanding achievements)
  • Distinguished Service Award (presented to an IU School of Dentistry graduate for exceptional service to the Dentistry Alumni Association)
  • Honorary Member (presented to an individual who is not a graduate of the IU School of Dentistry, but who has been determined to be worthy of membership status)
  • Certificate of Appreciation (presented in appreciation for specific contributions to the IU School of Dentistry and/or its alumni association; may, but need not, be a dental graduate)

All nominations will be given careful consideration and are decided upon by a committee consisting of your peers. Each award can be received only one time. Final decisions on the candidates will be made by February 7, 2014.

Please submit online nomination form. Our deadline for nominations is Friday, January 3, 2014.
