Nominations for the college’s Diversity and Inclusion Service Award (formerly called the Diversity Enhancement Award) are due April 1.
The award will include a letter of commendation, a plaque, and a monetary award of $500.
Faculty, staff, and students in the college are encouraged to apply. Nominees must be current faculty and staff employees in the college or students enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program of the college at the time of the nomination. Self-nominations are encouraged. Previous winners cannot apply for the same award category (faculty, staff, or student).
The Diversity and Inclusion Service Award was established in 2006 to recognize outstanding diversity accomplishments of faculty, staff, and students in the college. Individuals should exemplify excellence in advancing the college’s mission of promoting diversity in the college. In 2013, the award was changed to create separate categories for faculty, staff, and students. Award recipients will be recognized at a reception in May. The student award is named for Randolph Grayson, who students continuously cite for the encouragement and support he has given them over the years.
