Distinguished Alumni/ae

Hopkins is proud of its alumni/ae – talented men and women who are making outstanding contributions in their professions or fields of endeavor. To recognize excellence among its graduates, each year the Hopkins Distinguished Alumnus/a Award is presented at Reunion in June. Service to the School is not a factor; however, willingness to interact with the Hopkins community during Reunion is essential. Nominations are accepted at any time during the year, and self-nominations are welcome. (Please click here for a nomination form.)
