Do you know a Barry Alumnus/Alumna who lives a Barry life? The Distinguished Alumni Award is given to Barry Alums who have demonstrated (and continue to demonstrate) the Barry Core Commitments of: Knowledge & Truth, Inclusive Community, Social Justice, & Collaborative Service throughout their careers.

  • Knowledge and Truth
    Barry promotes and supports the intellectual life, emphasizing lifelong learning, growth, and development. The University pursues scholarly and critical analysis of fundamental questions of the human experience. In the pursuit of truth, the University advances development of solutions that promote the common good and a more humane and just society.
  • Inclusive Community
    Barry is a global, inclusive community characterized by interdependence, dignity, equality, compassion, and respect for self and others. Embracing a global world view, the University nurtures and values cultural, social and intellectual diversity, and welcomes faculty, staff, and students of all faith traditions.
  • Social Justice
    Barry expects all members of our community to accept social responsibility to foster peace and nonviolence, to strive for equality, to recognize the sacredness of Earth, and to engage in meaningful efforts toward social change. The University promotes social justice through teaching, research, and service.
  • Collaborative Service
    Barry is committed to serving local and global communities through collaboration and mutually-productive partnerships. The University accepts responsibility to engage with communities to pursue systemic, self-sustaining solutions to human, social, economic, and environmental problems.

These distinguished individuals lead their lives to Learn, Reflect, and Serve as Barry Proud Alumni and are leaders in their communities as well.
