The Distinguished Diversity Enhancement Award celebrates and rewards diversity efforts on The Ohio State University campus. The award recognizes up to five people who have demonstrated a significant commitment to enhancing diversity at Ohio State and exceeded expectations with their contributions to the diversity plans at Ohio State.
Award nominees may include campus organizations, academic units or teams, students, alumni, faculty or staff who have implemented policies, procedures, or programs to enhance diversity on the basis of any diversity qualities, such as color, race, creed, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, sex, age, disability, veteran or military service status, gender identity, economic status, political belief, marital status or social background.
Up to five recipients will be honored at an awards ceremony in April and each recipient will receive a commemorative award and $1,200 cash award.
The nomination deadline is January 15, 2016.
This award is presented by the University Senate Committee on Diversity and the Office of Human Resources.
