The University of Northern Colorado Athletic Hall of Fame was established in 1994 to recognize former UNC athletes, faculty and staff members, and others associated with the University of Northern Colorado, who have distinguished themselves in the field of athletics -- either by virtue of their performance on the athletic teams, representing the university, or by outstanding contributions on behalf of athletics.

The UNC Hall of Fame's first induction class comprised eight individuals. With the 2014 induction class, the Hall of Fame has grown to include 140 individuals and 32 athletic teams.

Nominations for the UNC Hall of Fame are accepted all year long. The selection commitee generally meets each December to select that year's inductees. A nomination form can be found below. Once a nomination has been made, that individual or team does not need nominated again to be considered. All nominees remain in the pool for the selection committee to consider each year.
