As long as the differences and diversities of mankind exist, democracy must allow for compromise, for accommodation, and for recognition of differences.

2020 MLK Diversity Awards Nominations
The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Diversity Recognition Awards honor individual or group achievement in the areas of diversity and inclusiveness. The awards represent equality, justice, and opportunity for all people. The recipient serves as a model for the entire University for his/her personal and professional commitment to the ideals epitomized by the life and work of Dr. King.
Individuals or groups will be recognized in the following three categories:
• Outstanding UMB faculty or unit
• Outstanding UMB staff or unit
• Outstanding UMB student or student group
In addition to the underlying principles outlined above, the President’s Diversity Advisory Council (DAC) will use criteria such as effectiveness, impact, uniqueness, and longevity when evaluating nominations. Plus a description of how the project, program, or initiative is an extension of the individual’s or group’s routine roles and responsibilities is appreciated. Nominators are encouraged to address as many of the criteria as appropriate. Self-nominations are acceptable.
The online nomination form must be submitted by Friday, Nov. 22, 2019.
