Nominations are requested annually for the two Alumnae & Alumni Association awards: the Eleanore Dolan Egan '28 Award for Outstanding Service to Chestnut Hill College and the Distinguished Achievement Award.


The Egan Award recognizes volunteer service to the College through the Alumni Association, while the Distinguished Achievement Award recognizes alums who have distinguished themselves in their business or profession or in civic, philanthropic, or other non-CHC volunteer activities.


As nominations move forward through the Awards & Honors Committee structure, nominees for the Egan Award are asked to provide references from alums as to their record of volunteerism to the College. Nominees for the Distinguished Achievement Award are asked to submit references from non-College/non-alum professional colleagues who will speak to the candidate's record of professional achievements.


Both awards are presented during Reunion Weekend.



The Libris Society

The Libris Society was formed in 2005 to recognize graduates of Chestnut Hill College who have distinguished themselves in their personal and professional lives while exemplifying the College motto of Fides...Caritas...Scientia.

(Faith, Charity, Knowledge.)


Graduates may be nominated by Chestnut Hill College alumni, faculty, staff, and friends; graduates may also self-nominate for consideration.
