2017 Award Winners

This fall, Colorado Mesa University recognizes distinguished alumni and faculty at the Homecoming Victory Dinner.

The Distinguished Alumni award is the highest honor the alumni association bestows on an individual. Colorado Mesa began the tradition of recognizing distinguished alumni in 1963. Recognizing these individuals not only brings attention to their high achievements, but also displays the quality of education provided by Colorado Mesa University.

The Maverick Athletic Hall of Honor promotes the values of a thriving athletic program by identifying and recognizing individuals or teams who deserve special acclaim for their significant contribution to Colorado Mesa University athletics.
