Athletic Hall of Fame
The College of Mount Saint Vincent Athletic Hall of Fame was created to honor those who have made significant contributions to the College through the field of athletics. The Hall of Fame is run in conjunction with the Office of Alumnae/i Relations and Giving. Anyone can make nominations to the Athletic Hall of Fame. The Alumnae/i Relations and Giving Office and Athletic Department will attempt to assist those making nominations by allowing access to the Mount Saint Vincent archives to enable the nominator to complete the autobiography.
All nominations must be received prior to the deadline. No nominations will be accepted after this date. Please provide two legible copies of your nomination packet for submission to the Committee or make your submission online form. Please see the nomination guidelines below. The selection meeting of the Athletic Hall of Fame Committee will take place as outlined by the chairperson of the committee.
Membership in the Athletic Hall of Fame is gained through election by the Hall of Fame Committee and is open to individuals who fall under one or more of the following non-exclusive categories:
- An alumnae/i, who, as an academically qualified student, participated in the College’s athletic program and received a degree at least five (5) or more years prior to his or her candidacy.
- Athletic directors, coaches and athletic staff preferably those with at least five (5) and ideally ten (10) years of service to the College.
- Friends and alumni of the College who have regularly enhanced interest in, and the success of, Mount Saint Vincent athletics as reflected by their career body of work.
1. Using the accompanying Application Form or the online nomination form, a succinct biographical profile should be submitted to the Alumni Relations Office prior to the deadline. This profile should be concise and contain only as much relevant information about the nominee’s athletic contribution. The length of the nomination packet does not always equate to the strongest nomination.
2. The selection of inductees will take place after sufficient discussion has taken place at the behest of the chairperson. At the conclusion of these statements, committee members will select current year’s inductees by closed ballot.
3. Up to five (5) candidates with the highest vote totals can be inducted into the Hall of Fame that fall.
4. Each non-inductee will remain in consideration for a period of no more than three (3) years. If, at the end of three years, a nominee has not been inducted, he/she can be renominated. There is no limit on how many times a person can be nominated.
