Athletic Awards

The University of Dubuque Alumni Association established the Alumni Athletic Hall of Fame in 1989 as a permanent place to honor those individuals who have promoted and served the University through its athletic programs.

The Hall of Fame recognizes former student-athletes, coaches, and supporters who have contributed to the success of the University of Dubuque both on and off the athletic field. It further promotes the University intercollegiate program and creates a focal point for alumni, family, friends and current University students, faculty, and staff.

In 2003, the Athletic Hall of Distinction was established to recognize individuals who have given unselfishly to further the University’s Athletic Programs and support its student-athletes. In an effort to recognize the great team’s throughout the history of UD, the Athletic Hall of Fame Team Award was also introduced.

Former athletic notables who meet the criteria have nominations submitted to the Hall of Fame Committee. The committee is comprised of former Spartan student-athletes and current UD administration and coaches. After nominating material is researched and compiled, the committee votes to determine the new inductees. Induction into the Alumni Athletic Hall of Fame takes place each fall. To submit your nominations online please complete the nomination form or call the Office of Alumni Relations at 800.483.2586 to have a form sent to you. Please note all nominations for the Hall of Fame Class are due no later than February 20 of the year the award is presented. If you have already been inducted into the Alumni Athletic Hall of Fame and would like to become involved in the selection process please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 563.589.3351.
