The Jack L. Anson award was established in 1982 in honor of the retiring executive director of the National Interfraternity Conference. This award is presented to a well-respected individual not in the field of higher education, who has demonstrated a long-term commitment to the fraternity/sorority community beyond his/her respective organization. The individual should have assisted in developing partnerships with higher education and the interfraternal community, fostered positive change to advance the fraternal movement, and/or served as a role model for students and professionals.
