2019 Diversity Hall of Fame and Black Pioneer inductees and honorees

Diversity Hall of Fame Alumni Awards are given annually to UNH graduates to recognize their accomplishments and commitment to social justice and equity. Recipients demonstrate a commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion on campus; work to foster progress toward respectful attitudes, behaviors and standards; as well as encourage difference at UNH and beyond. Recipients promote diversity and inclusion through mentoring and assisting others. Black Pioneer honors are given to those who have paved the way for future generations at UNH by being among the first students of color or by advancing enrollment of students of color. Eleven of the 16 inductees and honorees this year are College of Liberal Arts alumni. Awardees were honored at a dinner and ceremony in Durham on May 4, 2019.
