CIM recognizes the achievements of alumni through the Distinguished Alumni Award  and the Alumni Achievement Award. Recipients of these awards are recognized at CIM's annual commencement ceremony.

The Distinguished Alumni Award recognizes long-term achievement in the field of music and is presented to an alumnus or alumna who has attained regional or international stature through significant contributions in the areas of performance, composition, music theory, musicology or pedagogy. The Alumni Achievement Award recognizes recent contributions in the areas of performance, composition, music theory, musicology or pedagogy. 

Nominations are currently being accepted. If you would like to nominate a CIM alum for either award, please submit the Alumni Awards Nomination Form by January 15, 2018. Awards will be presented during commencement weekend.
