President's Impact Award to be announced on May 8

The President's Diversity Council Impact Award recipients will be announced during the spring induction ceremony for the Tapestry of Diversity Talents on Friday, May 8, at noon in the Memorial Union Century Theater. The campus community is invited to attend this ceremony and stay for the reception to follow in Butte Lounge.

The Impact Award was created in 2007 to recognize individuals, groups and units that have demonstrated a significant contribution to advancing diversity as related to the President's Diversity Council Strategic Plan for Diversity, Equity and Community.

Previous award recipients have engaged in positive interactions with others, respecting and valuing differences in backgrounds and points of view. The criteria for selection for the Impact Award include a commitment to the spirit of diversity; leadership through positive interaction among persons of different backgrounds and identities; and behavior that illustrates commitment to inclusion of persons within the institution who are members of traditionally under-represented groups.

Sandra Holbrook received the award in 2007 and NDSU FORWARD received last year’s award.

Several nominations were received this year and after careful review by the selection committee, one was chosen to receive the 2009 Impact Award. In addition to receiving a plaque to acknowledge the recipients award, the person or entity receiving this award will have the opportunity to designate a charity to receive a $500 cash award.
