SADC Pursuit of Inclusion Student Award

*Deadline: November 29, 2021

In 2008 The Division of Student Affairs at the University of Utah founded a diversity council to address issues of diversity and inclusion related to our work with students. The Student Affairs Diversity Committee (SADC) met for the first time in July 2009, and included representatives from each office in the Student Affairs division. This Committee helps to identify the needs of each office and seeks to enhance our knowledge and culturally competencies. It is important that our staff functions and interacts competently with our increasingly diverse campus community as we play a significant role in creating a safe and welcoming campus environment for all of our students, staff and faculty. Please consider a student who is making a difference, particularly one of your student staff.

The purpose of the award is to recognize a student who strives to cultivate an environment that embraces and promotes the broad scope of diversity within the Division of Student Affairs and/or the University community. The recipient who is selected will be eligible for a $500 scholarship from the Student Affairs Diversity Committee.
