Inclusive Excellence in Diversity Awards

Nominations for the inaugural Inclusive Excellence in Diversity Awards (previously the Dr. J. Michael Rollo Diversity Impact Award) presented by Multicultural and Diversity Affairs are now open!

The Inclusive Excellence in Diversity Awards recognize and reward 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 to create a supportive, inclusive, and just campus culture that embraces and celebrates the multifaceted nature of the University of Florida community.  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.
