Time to nominate JU’s Alumni of the Year
Nominations are now open for this year's "Alumni of the Year" Award at Jönköping University (JU). The prizes are awarded to former students who have made outstanding contributions in their professional role or as a private person. The ceremony will take place during the week of the Academic Ceremony in October.
“Alumni are important ambassadors for Jönköping University and Region Jönköping County, both in the local area and in large parts of the rest of the world . It is therefore important for JU to highlight our alumni and it feels great to be able to give recognition to specific individual efforts,” says Mats Jackson, Executive Vice President of JU.
The award will go to alumni who have made outstanding contributions in their professional role or as a private person. This contribution can, for example, be about entrepreneurship and innovation, collaboration, community involvement or an important cultural act.
“Our alumni are an important link between us and society and they are important role models towards both prospective students and current students, but also towards the business community,” says Mats Jackson.
How to nominate
Both staff, students and those external to the university are welcome to nominate which alumni should be nominated at each JU school.
