Awards Forms

Compass Points Alumnae Recognition Awards

Presented each spring and fall to alumna worthy of individual recognition. The awards are named for a direction point on the compass:

  • North—National Service
  • South—Special achievement outside of Theta Phi Alpha
  • East—Emerging younger alumna
  • West—Alumna with wealth of knowledge and wisdom

Nominators can suggest a category for their nomination, however the Board of Trustees reserves the right to place the nomination in a different category to provide balance and the best slate of awardees. Nominations that embrace ideals embodied in the Creed of Theta Phi Alpha will be weighted more highly. Nominations may be submitted via this link by any individual, chapter, or association.
