Theresa A. Kozikowski ’85, ’86G, is president of the Rensselaer Alumni Association.

Do you know an outstanding alumnus or alumna who volunteers his or her time in support of Rensselaer? If you do, please considering nominating them for one of the Rensselaer Alumni Association’s (RAA) annual volunteer awards, which are designed to recognize important alumni partners for the critical work they do.

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2017 RAA Awards Program, which recognizes outstanding alumni contributions in every area of volunteer work. Nominees may be new to their role, or have been involved for many years, and may have served in any area of the Institute. Awards are presented each year at Reunion & Homecoming, which will take place this year October 12-15.

Nominations are also being accepted for the 2017 RAA Teaching Award, which recognizes current members of the Rensselaer faculty for their outstanding teaching techniques, contributions to the campus experience, and commitment to students.

Descriptions and a nomination form may be found on the website. Nominations for all the awards are due by May 26. If you have questions, contact Geoff Seber at or (518) 276-2324.
