Onye Ozuzu, University of Colorado at Boulder professor of theater and dance, received the CACMA Diversity Service Award during the recent Excellence and Equity Lunch.
The Chancellor's Advisory Committee on Minority Affairs honors those who help create a diverse and supportive learning, working and living environment, and who are committed to promoting an understanding of multicultural issues. Ozuzu's Innovative Seed Grant Program application, "African Dance in America: The Archival Project," was reviewed and has been recommended for funding.
Ozuzu also is a faculty recipient of the 2009-2010 President's Diversity Award. She will join CU President Bruce D. Benson as he recognizes her and the other award recipients at a reception at the president's office on Thursday, May 6.
Larry Bell and Kim Kreutzer of the Office of International Education represent the academic/administrative unit recipient of the 2009-2010 President's Diversity Award. They are being honored in part for an initiative to bring students and faculty together. They also will be recognized on Thursday. Each Diversity Award recipient will also receive an award of $1,000.
