Awards and Nominations

The Alumni Association Awards and Athletic Hall of Fame Ceremony occurs on the Friday during Homecoming and Reunion Weekend in October. During the ceremony, K alumni and friends of the College gather to recognize those who have brought honor and distinction to Kalamazoo College through their accomplishments, service, and achievements. The award recipients represent, through their personal and professional accomplishments, the lasting value of Kalamazoo College – More in Four. More in a Lifetime.®  Nominate a K classmate, friend of the College, or current or retired employee for an award.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Through the Kalamazoo College Alumni Association’s inclusive communications and opportunities for engagement, we strive to have a group where every alum feels that the alumni association is a “home” intended for them — a place to belong. Commitment to anti-racism and respect for the diversity of experience and breath of thought among our 20,000+ alums are key parts of this effort. Continued learning about diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice serve to drive our evolution into a more just community. The membership of the Alumni Association Engagement Board (AAEB) and the AAEB alumni awardees demonstrate our resolve to so evolve.
