Extraordinary times call for extraordinary people.

As 2020 is showing us, these are those times, and our alumni are those people! Against all that is happening in our world today, we want to celebrate the extraordinary achievements of VU alumni at our annual Alumni Awards.

The VU Alumni Awards recognise those alumni who are making a powerful and positive difference in our community, and our world.

  • Lifetime Achievement Alumni Award: This award recognises a VU alum who has built an outstanding and impeccable reputation based on their all-round contributions to their profession/vocation and their community, bringing pride to VU through their embodiment of the VU Spirit.
  • Professional Achievement Alumni Award: This award recognises a VU alum who, through their achievements and conduct, both make a difference in their field of endeavour and are an inspiration to others.
  • Rising Star Alumni Award: This award recognises a young VU alum who is demonstrating significant early career and/or community service achievements, bringing pride to VU.

We need you to nominate an alum and help the university celebrate the remarkable work our alumni have accomplished. 

Nominations closed at 5pm on Monday 21 September. Thank you for your nominations!
