Award Information

  1. Purpose
    The Chancellor’s Diversity Award is given annually to recognize exceptional performance in promoting and enhancing diversity efforts on IU Southeast campus. It will support IU Southeast employees and units with innovative projects for advancing the diversity agenda outlined in the IU Southeast strategic and diversity plans.
  2. Award
    The winner will receive an appropriate certificate and would have his or her name added to a plaque that will be displayed publicly. Funding in the amount of $500 would be made available for the person to designate for support of a program or programs that would further advance the cause of diversity during the upcoming academic year. Accomplishments based on the award will be publicized for wide recognition as well as nomination for appropriate all-university diversity awards (being proposed for the Founders Day).

    The Chancellor’s Advisory Council on Diversity (Diversity Council) is responsible for developing criteria for the award and is responsible for recommending to the Chancellor the award recipient each year. In case a member of the Diversity Council is a nominee, the member will be excused from the selection process. The Council will evaluate the proposals after the nomination deadline and recommendations will be made to the Chancellor in April. The recipient will be announced in one of the subsequent award ceremonies held by the Chancellor.
