The Athletics Hall of Fame will induct not more than 15 individuals for induction in its first year and not more than six in any year thereafter. The below will set forth the criteria for selection to the Athletics Hall of Fame.
For former student athletes, a candidate selected should have exemplified desirable character traits and have performed outstandingly in competition representing CMU. Athlete nominees shall become eligible for induction into the Athletics Hall of Fame not sooner than five years following graduation from CMU.
Teams of distinction may be nominated to the Athletics Hall of Fame and may receive appropriate recognition, for example a picture or plaque, as designated by the Nominating Committee. Teams of distinction may be inducted into the Athletics Hall of Fame not sooner than five years following the end of the season of distinction which, in the opinion of the Nominating Committee, was sufficiently meritorious.
Administrators, Coaches and Others
Candidates may also include graduates and non-graduates who, through historic service and dedication to CMU, have distinguished themselves in the field of athletics in such capacities as the Nominating Committee finds appropriate and relevant.
