A&P's Diversity Council Recognized
A&P's Diversity Council was recognized on April 27 with a 2016 Distinguished Diversity Enhancement Award. It is presented to members of the Ohio State community who shape the university with cutting-edge curriculum, mentorship, new programs or policy impact that make diversity and inclusiveness a part of its best practices by changing daily operations, program components, or cultural awareness.
President Michael Drake and Vice Provost Sharon Davies presented the award to Council members Jorge Garcia (FOD), Laura Stehura (A&P Shared Services), Nate Thomas (FOD), Aparna Dial (FOD), Corey Balogh (TTM), Beth Snoke (TTM), Mary Alice Akins (WOSU), Dmitri Gaston (PARE), and Dale Harris (FOD). Council members unable to attend were Lee Southern (FOD), Bryan Thompson (OSUPD), and Gabriel Washington (FOD).
The Distinguished Diversity Enhancement Award is sponsored by the University Senate Committee on Diversity in cooperation with the Office of Human Resources.
