Guarini Diversity Award

Guarini Diversity Award

The Guarini Diversity Award is designed to recognize outstanding leadership and determined efforts by graduate students in addressing and raising awareness about issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion across campus and in our community. 

Outstanding Contribution to Diversity, Inclusion and/or Equality

The Diversity Award will be awarded annually to the graduate student(s) who best exemplify a deep commitment to serving the Dartmouth community. Successful recipients may have contributed in a number of ways, such as participating in student governance, serving on campus-wide committees and in the development and promotion of programs that make a positive impact on the community. The individual should combine personal qualities of dedication to inclusiveness, integrity and enthusiasm with effective service on behalf of the Guarini community.

Students currently enrolled in good standing in Guarini Master's and Doctoral programs are eligible for the award.

Nomination Process

The recipient(s) will be selected by the Guarini School. Departments, individual faculty members or administrators, and graduate students are eligible to propose a recipient in the form of a letter of nomination. All nomination letters must be submitted to the Assistant Dean of Recruiting, Diversity and Communications, Jane Seibel, no later than March 31.

The recipient(s) of the award will receive a cash prize of $1,000.
