President's Diversity Award includes up to $1,000

By Staff

Nominations are being accepted for the 2011 President's Diversity Award. The annual honor recognizes significant achievements of faculty, staff, students and academic or administrative units toward developing a more culturally diverse, competent and inclusive university community.

Up to four awards of up to $1,000 each are given for projects or practices that best reflect the implementation of system and/or campus diversity goals. Awardees will be recognized at the President's Diversity Award Reception in early May at the President's Office in downtown Denver, and they will be featured in the CU Faculty and Staff Newsletter.

Nominations are welcome from any member of the university community, and are sought in four categories: (1) faculty, (2) staff, (3) student and (4) academic unit or administrative unit. Faculty must be full-time tenured/tenure track or senior instructors/instructors; staff must be full-time professional exempt or classified employees; and students must be full-time undergraduate or graduate students. Unit refers to academic and administrative offices; staff, faculty, and student committees; and organizations (such as alumni) directly associated with CU.
