Nominees for the College of Architecture Outstanding Alumni Awards are evaluated on accomplishments reflecting the core values of Texas A&M—excellence, integrity, leadership, loyalty, respect and selfless service—in the following three areas:
Nominees will have been former students who were enrolled in a regular course of study in the College of Architecture (or its predecessor academic designations) at Texas A&M University or the A&M College of Texas. Former students may be nominated posthumously.
Any individual or group may submit a nomination. Nominations by a group must designate one contact person. The dean of the college will hold nomination packages, which must include:
Nominations are reviewed by a selection committee comprised of twelve College of Architecture representatives. Each of the college’s four departments appoints three respresentatives: two tenured faculty members and one past Outstanding Alumni Award honoree. Department heads consult with their faculty to appoint representatives. The selection committee, barring extenuating circumstances, recommends a group of nominees—not to exceed seven—to the dean for final selection, including any posthumous nominees.
Nomination packages should be assembled and submitted by the March 1, 2019 deadline established by the college. Nominees may be notified to ensure the completeness of their nomination packages and may, if needed, advise on suitable authors for letters of support.
Files for nominees not selected will be retained for consideration for two years following initial nomination. Individuals may be renominated at any time. Information concerning nominees will be kept confidential to protect the integrity of the process.
The dean of the college will notify successful nominees and arrange for the awarding of the honor. The dean’s office will prepare appropriate press releases and other announcements.
