The Sarah Lawrence Alumni Association established an annual recognition program to honor outstanding Sarah Lawrence alumni.

The Citation for Achievement is awarded to a person or persons whose work embodies the values and ideals of a Sarah Lawrence education, with the understanding that there is no one yardstick for achievement.

The Citation for Service is awarded to graduates for dedicated service to the College.

If you have questions or comments about nominations or the selection process, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations, at reunion@sarahlawrence.edu.
