About the Annual Alumni Awards
For more than 45 years, UNLV has recognized exceptional individuals who represent the ideals of higher learning and Rebel pride. Through the awards program, we recognize alumni, faculty, students, and community leaders for their outstanding achievements and leadership at the university as well as throughout our community. These recipients truly serve as inspiration for the generations of students who will follow.
Each year during Rebel Homecoming, 20 alumni and community members are honored.
