Since 1995, the Hanover College Athletic Hall of fame has recognized individuals who have served Hanover athletics with distinction, either by virtue of their performance as a coach, member of one or more athletic teams or by meritorious efforts on behalf of athletics, either as an undergraduate or in the years after leaving Hanover College.

The nominee's accomplishments after leaving Hanover (professional and/or community) and continuing interest in Hanover, through service and involvement in college activities, are additional factors.
