Good Morning colleagues!

Each year the Climate & Diversity Committee awards  individuals and programs that have displayed extraordinary commitment to enhancing our environment of mutual respect and diversity.  The awards are intended to highlight all members of the college community; undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, staff members, faculty members, as well as programs within the college that are supportive and welcoming of all individuals within our college community.  These awards allow us to share the success stories and celebrate the leadership and vision of individuals and programs.

This year we had 13 nominations, which made the task of selecting only 3 recipients extremely difficult. After careful consideration we are excited to announce the following winners:

Faculty – Steve Schaeffer (Biol)
Student – PAW – Physics and Astronomy For Women (student organization)
Staff – Starlette Sharp (Dean’s Office)

We invite everyone to join us at the Climate & Diversity Awards ceremony and reception to recognize these individuals.  The ceremony and reception will be Friday, January 15, 2016 at 3:00 PM at the Gateway to the Life Sciences.(The bridge between the Chemistry Building and the Huck Life Sciences building.)

Have a great evening!
Edie Rudy
Eberly College of Science Climate & Diversity Committee
