The Distinguished Alumni Awards is an annual tradition by the Falcon Alumni Network that represents the best of our alumni body. It recognizes outstanding alumni who have distinguished themselves professionally and through support of The University of Texas of the Permian Basin. The Distinguished Alumni Awards are granted in the fall during Homecoming.
Each year, two awards are given to honor these graduates. The Distinguished Alumni Award is the highest honor awarded by the alumni association. It recognizes UTPB alumni who have distinguished themselves professionally, earning esteem and recognition in their careers from colleagues and who have philanthropically supported the University and community. The Distinguished Young Alumni Award was created in 2017 with the principles of the Distinguished Alumni Award. It recognizes alumni under the age of 40 whose leadership and achievements brilliantly reflect the Falcon community.
