The council’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee created the award in 2021 to recognize faculty who contribute to the continued enhancement of a diverse campus community in accordance with IU Bloomington’s Statement on Diversity. The annual award acknowledges faculty who foster more inclusive spaces, programs and processes on the IU Bloomington campus.
Sylvia Martinez, co-chair of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee, said such recognition is essential.
“We know that many faculty on campus engage in diversity, equity and inclusion work, be it via research, artistic, teaching and/or service endeavors, but this work can sometimes be invisible,” Martinez said.
The 2022 recipients are:
- Raquel Anderson
- Colin Johnson
- Mary Murphy
- Amrita Myers
- Amanda Rutherford
