2013 CATEGORY: SOCIAL JUSTICE IMPACT
Impacting matters of diversity and inclusion on a broader educational
scale by influencing change in thinking or training, skill development, history lessons, cultural understanding and cross cultural interactions.
This award recognizes an individual, a staff/team, community or organization
for outstanding efforts in the education of students and/or staff with regard to our values of inclusiveness and the promotion of a deeper understanding of each other and of self. The desired understanding is enhanced via face to face dialog with persons of differing backgrounds and encompasses issues of social justice, multiculturalism, and knowledge of global societal circumstances and realities.
In keeping with the values of the Residence Services Department and the Student Affairs division, the Social Justice Impact Award recognizes an outstanding effort or an ongoing commitment to the core values of engaging students and enriching students' interactions promoting cross cultural understanding.
Residence Services staff teams, individuals, organizations, communities, or groups are eligible to receive this award.
The award will be based on contributions to establish or engage in creative activity that reflects multicultural values and perspectives, through a one-time event or ongoing effort to enhance diversity education for students or UND Residence Services staff. The period of consideration for the award is the current academic year. Some examples include, but are not limited to:
- social justice discussion
