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 sponsor six different awards: Collaboration Award, Community Award, Faculty Award, Staff Award, Student Organization Award, and the Dr. J. Michael Rollo Diversity Impact Award, recognizing inspiring students who demonstrate leadership by committing to actively create a more diverse and inclusive campus community. Recipients of these awards should actively display and affirm MCDA’s values of fostering community, multicultural education, intercultural engagement, inclusive leadership development, and advocacy.
MCDA we will no longer be having the in-person award ceremony but we are accepting nominations to still recognize individuals and organizations.
