Barb Boose Publications Director, Marketing and Communications March 13, 2017A great way to say something about DMU and your profession Des Moines University graduates are powerful proof of the institution’s quality. They “say” a lot about their professions, too, to DMU students and the general public. That’s why it’s important that you consider nominating yourself or a fellow DMU graduate for an Alumni of the Year Award!Every year, DMU honors a graduate of each of its three colleges – Osteopathic Medicine, Podiatric Medicine and Surgery, and Health Sciences – for an Alumni of the Year Award, selected by the DMU Alumni Association Board of Directors and the three colleges’ Alumni Councils. Recipients must be members in good standing of their respective professional state or national organization and the DMU Alumni Association; demonstrate excellent service to DMU, its students and their professions; and demonstrate a record of service to their community on a local, state and/or national level.Alumni of the Year honorees reflect positively on the University, their college and their profession. They promote pride among their fellow alumni. These individuals also inspire current DMU students and give them invaluable and aspirational role models.Give a fellow graduate – or yourself – “rock star” status: Use the online form to submit a nomination for a DMU Alumni of the Year honoree, or call 515-271-1463. View past recipients of this prestigious honor on the DMU website.
