Alumni Hall of Fame

The Physical Sciences Alumni Hall of Fame honors those who have made a significant impact in their profession, or in other ways have brought distinction to their alma mater. Every fall, we seek nominations for exceptional alumni and then hold a special celebration for new and past Hall of Fame inductees during the following winter.

If you would like to nominate a Physical Sciences alum, please submit your nomination to Sonia Batra at sbatra1@uci.edu by Friday, December 14, 2018. In your nomination, include: name, class, and email address of nominee and reasons for nominating the alumnus/a. Please also include additional documentation supporting this nomination such as letters of support and/or documents showing professional projects or accomplishments. The decision of the selection committee will be guided by the materials submitted with the nomination.
