The Office of Multicultural Student Programs and Services is now accepting nominations for the 2009 Multicultural ExCEL Awards. This event is designed to honor students, faculty, staff, and neighbors (individuals, agencies or companies) for their dedication to enhancing diversity and multiculturalism on our campus and in the community. This dedication can be displayed through their teaching, athleticism, student leadership, departmental support or commitment to the community.
With the exception of three student award categories (Septima P. Clark, Eugene C. Hunt, and Lucille S. Whipper), we do not see race as the primary factor in the nomination or selection process. It is our hope that you will nominate the most deserving recipient based on the criteria provided for each award and their commitment to providing a welcoming campus environment for everyone. All CofC students, full-time faculty, staff, and administrators are eligible to receive these awards.
