Union Catholic's rich athletic history is what prompted the inception of the Hall of Fame, with the desire to acknowledge those who have excelled in their particular field. In 2008, the Hall of Fame expanded its honorees to recognize not only athletes, but other alumni, faculty, friends and parents who have made a significant impact on the UC Community, their profession, or society.

Nominations for induction to the Hall of Fame will be based on the following categories:

Alumni: Honors alumni who have made significant contributions in volunteer, academic or professional pursuits

Arts: Honors individuals who have distinguished themselves in the Arts

Athletics: Honors outstanding athletic achievements of an individual, team or coach while at UC, or in their post-UC athletic careers

Community Leader: Honors individuals who have distinguished themselves through their philanthropic efforts, in the spirit and tradition of community service at UC

Educator: Honors current or former UC faculty or staff members who epitomize the UC values of excellence, respect for learning, and service to others, and who have made a lasting impression on UC

Parent: Honors current or past Union Catholic parents who have dedicated time and talent to promoting the core values of Union Catholic

UC Hero: Honors exceptional individuals who have displayed heroic qualities and/or achievements
