Seneca Alumni

Senecans of Distinction Awards

With a desire to recognize and celebrate those who make significant contributions to Seneca on campus and in the community, The Senecans of Distinction Award was born. Every year we recognize many donors, industry partners, volunteers and community organizations who have been doing outstanding work in support of Seneca's students and mission.



You can play a significant role in helping us identify worthy candidates and their work. If you know of alumni, volunteers, donors or partners, who have excelled in their careers and have made significant social and economic contributions to the Seneca community, we want to know.
