More about the Awards

Seton Hall University is like a mid-size city - with over 80,000 alumni, 10,000 students and 1,500 employees. However, more than 150 years after its founding, it remains true to its mission; it is a welcoming community, rooted in faith, and is steadfast in the pursuit of academic excellence.

Tied together by a common bond, Many Are One is the only event at which all of Seton Hall comes together as one to celebrate Seton Hall. Through it, alumni, faculty, administrators, students and friends gather to share the special link that unites them all - their devotion to Seton Hall.

Each year, members of the University community are selected for special recognition. These honorees are chosen because of their dedication to making Seton Hall better.

  • The Alumni Impact Award is presented to an alumnus or alumna whose extraordinary contributions of time, talent or treasure have greatly advanced the mission of Seton Hall University. 
  • The Humanitarian Award is presented to an alumnus or alumna who embodies Seton Hall's mission of servant leadership by making a significant positive impact on his or her community. 
  • The Most Distinguished Alumnus Award is the most prestigious alumni award given by the University. This award is presented to an individual who has been recognized as an outstanding leader in his or her professional field.
