The Annual Alumni Association Awards Gala is an elegant black tie event held to honor and celebrate the achievements of individuals who have made their mark on the university. The honorees span several generations and represent numerous professions. They are educators and entrepreneurs, scientists, artists and leaders. Their professional achievements, humanitarian efforts and steadfast devotion to Maryland make them worthy ambassadors for the university. This year's inductees join an exclusive list of individuals who have been previously honored that have contributed above and beyond to the campus and the community at-large. The Awards Gala is attended by approximately 500 of the university's most dedicated and respected community including the University President, Vice Presidents, Deans, Faculty, Dignitaries and elite donors. Sponsorship opportunities are available. Becoming a sponsor of the Gala provides philanthropic participation and enables the Alumni Association and the university to honor these individuals that impacted a vast section of interests, as well as regionally, nationwide and globally.
