The Dr. Cornelius Hopper Diversity Excellence Award nomination deadline has been extended to Friday, November 1, 2013.
The requirements for submitting nominations have been simplified.
When consulting the Dr. Hopper Diversity Excellence Award criteria and process webpage, please refer to the “Nomination Process” and “Award Application” sections for instructions.
The person submitting nominations should write a letter of recommendation and provide contact information for that individual. Additionally, a statement describing the individual’s contributions to the University’s commitment to diversity should be submitted by either the person nominating, or, the nominee. A project, program, research or other initiative advancing the goals of the diversity plan are examples to be included in the statement of nomination.
Award applications should be submitted to OfficeofthePresident@samuelmerritt.edu or faxed to 510-869-6725. All applicants will be considered by the University Diversity Action Council (UDAC). The award recipient(s) will be announced and recognized at the President’s Dinner in December.
