The Diversity Leadership Awards seek to recognize University faculty and staff members who display leadership in fostering diversity both on campus and within the surrounding community and to highlight, in concert with the University of Chicago Alumni Board, the contributions of alumni who advance the cause of justice and equality in our community and society.

A COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY

President Zimmer, in the University's Diversity Statement, writes:

“A commitment to diversity is central to our mission of discovery ... We have an obligation to see that the greatest variety of perspectives is brought to bear on the issues before us as scholars and citizens. We therefore celebrate our tradition of inclusion and recognize that our success as an institution depends on its ongoing renewal.”

Please consider nominating a faculty member, staff member, or alumna/us for a Diversity Leadership Award. In doing so, you help recognize those who fulfill our obligation to promote a University and society characterized by diversity, equity, and inclusion.
