The College of Arts & Sciences announced that this year’s award goes to the African American & African Diaspora Studies Program.
The African American & African Diaspora Studies Program plays a key leadership role in The College of Arts & Sciences in helping to promote diversity and inclusiveness for all students, faculty, and staff.
As an interdisciplinary program with a diverse faculty (in terms of race, gender, and ethnicity), rich course offerings (from multiple disciplines and across the world), inclusive curricula (encompassing courses on race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and class), and an array of cross-campus initiatives and programing (including conferences, lectures, workshops, and field trips), AADS is central to the College in creating inclusive social environments, advancing academic excellence, pushing disciplinary boundaries, producing innovative research, and fostering personal and professional development.
