CEHD students win Scholarly Excellence in Equity & Diversity awards
Three CEHD students were among the 2010 Scholarly Excellence in Equity and Diversity (SEED) award winners announced in November. Kimberly Diggles, Ph.D. student in marriage and family therapy (family social science); Kevin Hynes, senior in family social science; and Bai Vue, senior in human resource development were honored at a University ceremony for their outstanding work on issues of equity, diversity, and social justice in the classroom and in the community.
Diggles is a recipient of an American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy Fellowship. She is a former McNair Scholar and has research interests in racial and cultural socialization in minority families.
Hynes is majoring in psychology as well as family social science. He has worked on adoption research and cites his own adopted person status and Korean birth culture as contributors to his deep interest and understanding of cultural diversity.
Vue, in addition to his human resource development major, has minors in leadership and human resource industrial relations. He is the education co-chair for the Hmong Minnesota Student Association and has been a McNair Scholar and Multicultural Kickoff Ambassador.
