New Horizons Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Award


With the New Horizons Award, the Division of Engineering and Applied Science annually recognizes and honors individuals within the EAS community who have actively contributed to our goal to be a diverse, equitable, and inclusive engineering community. The award is available to members of the EAS community, including current students, postdoctoral scholars, staff, and faculty, whose activities have impact and may include demonstrated leadership, advocacy and community organizing, development of equity and inclusion resources, and engagement in engineering outreach to local schools or communities.

Nominations are solicited each spring – click here for how to nominate.
