AYA Board of Governors Excellence Awards

Since the implementation of the AYA Strategic Plan in 2007, classes, clubs, SIGs, and G&P schools have been increasing alumni engagement by reinvigorating traditional programs and creating new ones. The AYA aims to recognize the accomplishments of alumni organizations through the AYA Board of Governors Excellence Awards. These awards complement those for individual volunteers, such as the Yale Medal and the AYA Leadership Awards.
