A new way of celebrating our exceptional alumni

Our new interactive touch-screen Alumni Wall of Honor kiosk

Next time you join us on campus in Sacramento, you will notice a new way of honoring our distinguished alumni — our “Alumni Wall of Honor” on the Education Building’s third-floor breezeway has been updated. An interactive touch-screen kiosk now replaces the pictures of graduates that for years crowded the wall near the dean’s office.

The new technology was born of a good dilemma of sorts. Space was running out on the wall, allowing us to share only very little information beyond a headshot of each award recipient and a small plaque with their name and award year.

The dozens of 5-by-7-inch portraits have now been scanned into digital files for the kiosk, and users can navigate through a series of options to see them and deeper accompanying profiles for all of our past School of Medicine Alumni Association Award recipients:

  • Distinguished Alumnus Award
  • Humanitarian Award
  • Transformational Leadership Award
  • Resident Professionalism Award
  • Clinical Fellow Professionalism Award

“The wall was outdated and just packed. This is much more useful to look up and learn who these important people are,” said M.L. Farrell, the School of Medicine’s director of alumni engagement.
