Apply Now for the President’s Excellence in Diversity and Equity Awards

The Division of Institutional Diversity, Equity and Community Engagement is currently accepting applications for the President's Excellence in Diversity and Equity Awards. These awards recognize faculty, staff, and students who have made significant efforts to promote the value of diversity and the importance of equity at Texas Tech.

As a campus advocate for diversity and equity, I urge you to apply or nominate a faculty member, staff, or student for the President's Excellence in Diversity and Equity Awards. The faculty awardee will receive a $2,500 research award, the staff awardee will receive a $1,500 professional development award, and three students will each receive a $500 scholarship. Applications and nominations are due by March 11, 2016. I encourage you to visit http://www.depts.ttu.edu/iduesa/funding.php for more information on the application and nomination process.
