The TCNJ Alumni Association Board invites the college community to submit nominations for the Alumni Leadership Awards. Individuals being nominated should have made a lasting impact on TCNJ or society through outstanding professional, philanthropic, or volunteer accomplishments.

“The Alumni Leadership awards showcase our alumni for their exemplary service and commitment to their communities,” said Angelica Cardona ’08, board president. “The fact that recipients are nominated by their fellow alums is truly special and I look forward to presenting these awards in the spring at Alumni Weekend!”

All nominees are reviewed by the board’s alumni awards committee. The 2024 award ceremony will take place at an awards ceremony in the R. Barbara Gitenstein library during Alumni Weekend on Saturday, April 20, 2024.
