Call for Nominations: Regents Diversity Awards
The Board of Regents and University of Wisconsin System administration invites you to submit nominations for the 2014 UW System Board of Regents Diversity Awards. The awards celebrate institutional change agents with successful records of fostering greater access and success for students of historically underrepresented populations including African Americans, American Indians, Latinos/Hispanics, Asian Americans, and Southeast Asians as well as first generation and/or economically disadvantaged.
One award will be made in each of the three categories; individual, team, and institution/unit. The funds for these awards will be designated to support the individual recipients' professional development or programmatic activities. Winners will be publicly recognized at the UW Board of Regents meeting on February 6 or 7, 2014, in Madison
UW System institutions may submit one nomination per category for a maximum of three nominations per institution. The nomination materials can be found here.
The Board of Regents Diversity Award Committee will review all the nominations. This is a unique opportunity to highlight outstanding individuals, departments, and programs and I strongly encourage you to submit a nominee in each category.
Nominee should compile all application materials and submit nomination packets to University of Wisconsin-Parkside, Senior Diversity Officer Edward Twyman, no later than October 9, 2013.
