Advocacy and Action Awards

The Office of Community, Equity, and Diversity (OCED) recognizes the historical significance of these awards as avenues toward building awareness of the good work being done to bring inclusion and equity for all and to reinforce how “difference” in any setting brings value and, furthermore, recognition of this fact helps each member of our university community thrive.
