Honorary Alumni

The honorary alumnus/a designation is used to recognize special friends of Bridgewater College and the Alumni Association. An honorary alumnus/a is nominated by the College President, and referred to the Alumni Association Board of Directors’ Executive Committee for review and recommendation to the Board of Directors for action.

An appropriate certificate signed by the College President and the Alumni Association President will be prepared for presentation at an appropriate ceremony. The Board recognizes that circumstances (for example, illness, age, travel arrangements, etc.) may suggest presentation prior to Board action. In such cases, the College President, the Alumni Association President and the Alumni Association Executive Director may proceed and report to the Board such actions.
