2018 Alumni Awards

Recognise an innovator, creator, leader

2017 Alumni Award recipients

Since 1975, the University has celebrated the exceptional leadership and innovation of UON alumni who have inspired others and made a positive contribution to their local, national and international communities. Over 130 alumni have been recognised for their professional and personal dedication to making a profound impact on communities worldwide and inspiring the next generation of UON students.

Nominating alumni for a UON Alumni Award is a wonderful way to recognise their impact and contribution to society. For many of our previous Alumni Award finalists and recipients, the nominations process has also been a step in reconnecting with their UON alma mater and embarking on a lifelong journey together with our students, academics and wider University community.
