Advancing Diversity Award

If your student’s work speaks of diversity, we would like to consider it for recognition.

The Student Experience Diversity Committee is pleased to announce the annual Advancing Diversity Award.  This recognition is awarded to a Wentworth student(s) who produces a distinguished paper, project, or other work that evidences the concerns of social justice, the imperatives of diversity, the impact of participatory action, the ethical consideration of the relationship of self to other, or otherwise generally demonstrates, celebrates, or explores an inclusive communitarian consideration. Historicized and contemporary considerations of the above will be considered.  

Eligible papers and projects may originate from any department or discipline as long as they express the above listed impulses. Submissions will be reviewed by an awards committee and presented at the Wentworth Annual Awards Ceremony.
