Alumni Impact Awards

At Southern Cross, we have a long standing tradition of recognising the achievements of outstanding alumni through the Alumni of the Year Awards. Past recipients are leaders and innovators across a diverse range of disciplines.

This year we will recognise and celebrate our talented graduates through the Southern Cross Univeristy Impact Awards -  a new program established in our 25th year to recognise the collective impact of our staff and alumni. 

Nominations will be peer reviewed before finalists and award recipients are selected by a panel. All finalists will be invited to a gala awards event on 30 October 2019. 

Nominations are now closed for 2019.
