The Inaugural Distinguished TUJ Alumni Awards

The Inaugural Distinguished TUJ Alumni Award

he true measure of a university's greatness can be found in the achievements of its alumni.

As we prepare to celebrate our history as the largest and oldest foreign university campus in Japan, we seek first and foremost to honor and recognize you: our alumni. A central focus of our 40th anniversary activities will pay tribute to all those who have studied at the Japan campus – whether it was for one semester or several years.

We ask for your help in identifying and nominating individuals for our inaugural Distinguished TUJ Alumni Awards. We seek to identify alumni who have exemplified the school’s mission to elevate excellence.

This new award recognizes outstanding alumni who have demonstrated excellence in their personal and professional achievements no matter their particular endeavor or field: voluntary service, non-profit, the arts, science, sports, education or industry. We seek to honor those whose dedication and professionalism to their vocation or advocation merit the respect of their peers.

The nomination process for the inaugural Distinguished TUJ Alumni Awards will include and encompass canvassing alumni, administrators, and faculty. Wide participation is critical to the award selection process and your thoughtful participation in this process is greatly appreciated (submissions will be accepted until May 1, 2022).
