Alumni Awards

The BU Wheelock Alumni Awards honor those alumni who, in their work with children, families, and communities, bring us closer to achieving a more just and equitable society. Through these awards, we recognize alumni from BU Wheelock, BU School of Education, and Wheelock College. Learn more about the 2022 BU Wheelock Alumni Awardees.

Through their work and service, our alumni elevate the standards of excellence in their professional fields. We honor our many exceptional alumni with awards that speak to their recipients’ unique contributions, be it as educators, counselors, advocates or leaders. Our alumni help define what it meant to be a part of the BU Wheelock community.


Nominations may be submitted by faculty, staff, alumni, or our peers in the community. Awardees are honored at a ceremony held during Boston University’s Alumni Weekend.  All previous graduates (both undergraduate and graduate) of BU Wheelock, BU School of Education, and Wheelock College are eligible for consideration of these awards. Any award may not be presented if no eminently qualified candidate is identified that year.
