Alumni Award Ceremony & Lunch

Location: Good Shepherd Chapel & Patio
Time: 11:30 am

Since 2002, Concordia University Irvine has recognized outstanding alumni with Alumni of the Year awards for Professional Achievement and Distinguished Service. In 2020, a new category was added to highlight G.O.L.D. Alumni - undergraduate alumni who have graduated within the last ten years. Selected by the Concordia Alumni Board of Directors with a goal to pay tribute to alumni and recognize their outstanding achievements and service to Concordia, their community, and/or their professions. Because the last two years have been in a virtual format, we invite all past Alumni Award Recipients and their families to attend.

Congratulations to the 2023 Alumni of the Year!
