The Monty Awards are a time-honored tradition at San Diego State University. The award is a symbol of achievement and success presented to distinguished alumni from each of SDSU's seven academic colleges, Library and Information Access, and SDSU Imperial Valley Campus. In addition, distinguished service awards are given to an exceptional alumni volunteer and an outstanding university employee. 

The Monty Awards honor those who have made significant contributions to San Diego State University, the San Diego community or California, nationally or internationally.
