Inclusive Excellence Awards

The Inclusive Excellence Awards recognize and celebrate the efforts of individuals, departments and groups who display exceptional leadership in fostering diversity and inclusion both on campus and in the surrounding Gainesville community. These awards reflect MCDA’s mission of celebrating and empowering diverse communities and being advocates for an inclusive campus for all students across identities. This year, MCDA will award the following: Community Award, Student Organization Award, Outstanding Inclusive Excellence Initiative Award and the Dr. J. Michael Rollo Diversity Impact Award (Faculty, Staff, and Student).

Recipients of these awards should actively display and affirm MCDA’s values of fostering community, multicultural education, intercultural engagement, inclusive leadership development, and advocacy.
