​Unsung Diversity Hero Award

Who we are and How we work together is of the utmost importance in the College of Agriculture. Our goal is to build and sustain a climate and culture where everyone in the college is included, respected and supported and each individual is able to reach his or her full potential for success. There are many individuals who work every day to foster an environment of respect and optimism. Therefore the "Unsung" Diversity Hero Award was established to acknowledge those individuals who work tirelessly to make a difference in the lives of others.

The "Unsung" Diversity Hero award recognizes faculty, staff, and students who have positively influenced a program, department, or organization from behind the scenes with a positive attitude, a willingness to help in whatever capacity necessary, and a commitment to excellence.
