Alumni Fellows Program

The Alumni Fellows Program recognizes alumni who have distinguished themselves in their careers. Fort Lewis College is proud of its graduates. After alumni establish themselves in their respective career fields and make exciting strides in some way, they deserve to be recognized. This program brings successful alumni back to campus to meet with students and faculty, and share their expertise in the classroom and during this celebration.

Alumni Fellows will be recognized during the Undergraduate Research & Creative Activities Symposium Closing Gala at 4:15 on April 18, 2019. Family and friends are invited to attend.

How it works

Each year, department chairs from each department will nominate a distinguished alumni that they believe deserves the title of Alumni Fellows. The Alumni Fellows are invited back to Fort Lewis College to celebrate in their honor the week of the Undergraduate Research Symposium.

The Alumni Fellows program will serve as a means for enriching the FLC experience by exposing students to outstanding alumni who share extensive knowledge and real-world experience in their respective fields. The program is intended to be a stimulating way to blend the interests of the accomplished professionals, the students, and the faculty.

Frequently, Fellows debunk cherished myths and often they hand out practical advice on how to acquire skills and fulfill one’s career objectives. Sometimes they point them toward unconsidered goals. Unfailingly, Fellows stimulate thought, debate, and action.

The Alumni Awards recipients will be encouraged to attend all events at the Undergraduate Research Symposium to support our students, increase attendance and make the day impactful for our students and alumni. All Alumni Fellows will be invited to the gala celebration where they will be specially recognized.
