Each fall, the UMAA celebrates the achievement of outstanding individuals, alumni societies and alumni chapters that have demonstrated exceptional commitment and leadership to UMAA and the University from the past year. These awards recognize and celebrate those who are contributing to the mission of the Alumni Association by connecting alumni, students, and friends in lifelong support of the University of Minnesota and each other. Our chapter is proud to have been selected as the Outstanding Alumni Chapter of the Year for 2011.
