To celebrate the Alpha Sigma Nu tenets, starting in 2016-2017 academic year, the Magis Medal will be awarded annually to two Alpha Sigma Nu members who best exemplify scholarship, loyalty, and service in their work to better the world.
The Magis Medal was founded as part of the Centennial celebration of Alpha Sigma Nu in 2015. To honor the 100th anniversary of the Society, 100 members were awarded the Magis Medal. The original 100 Magis Medal winners embodied their Jesuit roots in their daily work in varied ways. Many started or contributed significantly to non-profit organizations, some with Jesuit connections, which directly addressed social justice issues. Others advocated for social justice through their professional work, such as attorneys making pro bono work a priority. Winners focused their work on social justice issues from the environment to disaster relief to refugee aid programs. Through this annual award, Alpha Sigma Nu hopes to highlight the great work being done by fellow members living their pledge out in the world after graduation and inspire new members to carry that flame with them as they begin their careers.
Nominations for the award will be accepted from Alpha Sigma Nu members using the online nomination form. We are not currently accepting nominations. More information on the Award timeline will be announced in the new year.
