We are pleased to announce a call for nominations for the 2011 Josie R Johnson Award and the Outstanding Community Service Awards. While these two awards have varying nomination guidelines, they complement one another and honor students, faculty, staff, and University-affiliated community members who create respectful and inclusive living, learning and working environments and demonstrate commitment and passion in the areas of human rights, social justice and the public good.
The Josie R. Johnson Human Rights and Social Justice Award is given to two individuals each year-one current faculty or staff member and one current undergraduate or graduate student. The award recognizes individuals who are passionately engaged in the areas of social justice, human rights, equity and diversity.

The University's Outstanding Community Service Awards recognize faculty, staff, students, and University-affiliated community members who, by devoting their time, talents, and expertise to serve the public good, have made significant, demonstrable contributions to society's well-being. Four awards will be made: (1) Outstanding Faculty Member Community Service Award; (2) Outstanding Student Community Service Award;(3) Outstanding Staff Community Service Award; and (4) Outstanding Community Partner Service Award.
