Alumni Honor Citation

Since 1958 the Department of Theatre has awarded an Alumni Honor Citation to graduates of the department to honor the academic and professional accomplishments of our alumni. The representation of this award also inspires the faculty to continue to provide the best experience for their current students with the knowledge they continue to nurture the brightest and the most talented of academicians and artists in the region. Recipients are selected by the department based on their contributions to their chosen field, whether it be in academic or professional theatre and film or another concentrations.
