The RU Alumni Association is accepting nominations for the 2023 Rochester Excellence Award.

The Rochester University Excellence Award is given to a faculty or staff member who has left a positive impact on students, fellow colleagues or community members. They embody what it means to be a true Rochester University Warrior. This person may have encouraged you, helped expand your horizons, or otherwise made a lasting impression on your life.

If so, we hope you will consider nominating an individual for the Faculty Excellence Award. This award provides our proud Warrior alumni with the opportunity to submit stories about those who have inspired them at RU.

There are only two criteria for the award:

  1. The nominator (you) must be a graduate of Rochester University
  2. The nominee (the person you are nominating) must be a living, current or former member of Rochester University faculty or staff (full-time or part-time).

The online nomination form is short and secure. Please submit your completed nomination by April 10, 2023. The winner will be announced this spring and honored at Partnership Dinner on April 22, 2023.

Please contact Taylor Isenberg at or 248.218.2170 if you have any questions or concerns. We look forward to reviewing your submissions.
