Outstanding Alumni Award Criteria

The University of Iowa College of Public Health is pleased to announce that it is accepting nominations for the 2022 College of Public Health Outstanding Alumni Awards. The intent of this collegiate award is to contribute to an enduring sense of community between the College of Public Health and its alumni. This award complements existing University-wide alumni award programs.

The Outstanding Alumni Awards recognize outstanding alumni in two categories: first, recent graduates who have completed College of Public Health programs within the past ten years and, second, other alumni for accomplishments throughout their careers.
