The University of Oregon Division of Equity and Inclusion will recognize campus community members who employ the values of diversity, equity and inclusion to move the university forward at the Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Award Ceremony and Luncheon.
One award will be presented in each of three categories: Social Justice; LACE: Love, Authenticity, Courage and Empathy; and IDEAL Institutionalization for those who demonstrate outstanding commitment to using principles of the UO IDEAL framework (Inclusion, Diversity, Evaluation, Achievement and Leadership).
In addition to the presentation of awards, this year’s featured speaker is Bakari T. Sellers, CNN political analyst and former representative from South Carolina. Sellers is part of the UO African American Workshop and Speaker Series, sponsored by the Office of the President, and facilitated by the Division for Equity and Inclusion.
