The 32nd annual Many Are One alumni awards gala sponsored by Mercer is Seton Hall’s annual celebration of the ways the University’s alumni have positively influenced our world and exemplify Seton Hall’s mission of servant leadership.

This year, the gala comes back to campus and will be held in the newly constructed Bethany Hall, a welcome center dedicated to Monsignor Robert Sheeran ’67, president emeritus of Seton Hall. Monsignor Sheeran requested the center be named Bethany Hall after the Biblical village where Mary, Martha and their brother Lazarus received Jesus into their home, as a place of friendship and community.

Proceeds raised from Many Are One support the Many Are One Alumni Endowed Scholarship Fund, which provides children, grandchildren and siblings of alumni who attend Seton Hall with four-year scholarships.

About the Awards

Seton Hall University is like a mid-size city - with over 100,000 alumni, 10,000 students and 1,500 employees. However, over 160 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 improving Seton Hall and their communities.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • School and College Service Awards: Each year at Many Are One all of Seton Hall's schools and colleges select an alumnus/a to receive their respective service award. Service awards recognize the dedication each alumnus/a has to their profession and their service to their community and Seton Hall.
