Diversity award winners lauded


A researcher and advocate for LGBT rights along with an office that serves as a “home away from home” for minority students were recognized as the University’s 2014 Presidential Diversity Award recipients on Jan. 24. John Cullen, a research associate professor in the Department of Surgery, and the Office of Minority Student Affairs (OMSA) were chosen for their commitment to helping create an inclusive, equitable, and supportive campus, said Vivian Lewis, deputy to the president and vice provost for Faculty Development and Diversity and chair of the award’s selection committee. “Diversity is a fundamental value of our University,” said President Joel Seligman. “In recognizing John Cullen and the OMSA team, we celebrate and affirm our commitment to that value and hope to inspire others to emulate their good work.” Pictured, from top left: Seligman, Lewis, Norman Burnett (OMSA), Cullen, Natasha Williams (OMSA), Thomas Crews (OMSA), Sasha Elio (OMSA), Walisa Griffin (OMSA), and Claudia Hernandez (OMSA).
