Nominate VU alumni for an award!

Alumni Awards 2017 finalists

Victoria University takes great pride in the achievements and successes of our alumni. Our alumni reflect VU's values and help create our legacy.

The Alumni Awards program raises awareness of our global community of over 240,000 alumni and honours their outstanding contributions to our university, to Melbourne’s West, to Australia and in the international arena.

This is your chance to be involved as a nominator or nominee (or both). We want you to identify a great colleague, friend or family member who has graduated from VU or one of our predecessor institutions. They'll be a part of the celebration to recognise the difference the VU Alumni Community makes to our society.
