Annual Diversity Awards
The Diversity Awards recognizes the efforts and contributions of students, student organizations, staff, faculty and community members in advancing the UT Dallas commitment to embrace, enhance, and celebrate diversity at all levels of the University and our community. The Diversity Awards ceremony is the culmination of ODCE's many programs and initiatives throughout the year. This year, the 2015 Diversity Awards Ceremony celebrated its sixth anniversary where it brought together 300 guests in the UT Dallas Alexander Clark Center. The ceremony included:
- A special performance by the winner of the UT Dallas Slam Poetry Competition.
- A testimonial by a UT Dallas Diversity Retention Scholarship Recipient.
- Recognition of the 2015 UT Dallas Champions of Diversity. The awards recognized faculty, staff, students, community and corporate awardees.
