DLC Seeking Nominations for Diversity Recognition Awards

The Johns Hopkins Diversity Leadership Council is seeking nominations for its annual Diversity Recognition Awards, which recognize exceptional contributions of faculty, staff and students in advancing and celebrating diversity and inclusiveness at Johns Hopkins.

Faculty, staff and students from all divisions of the university and the health system are eligible, with the exception of current members of the council. Individuals may nominate themselves or be nominated by any Johns Hopkins community member. The nomination package should include a description of the nominee's commitment to the advancement of diversity, inclusion and/or multiculturalism as demonstrated by specific efforts and accomplishments above and beyond his or her regular duties.

The nomination should include the nomination form, available at the DLC Web site,; a supporting document (not to exceed two pages, double-spaced) describing how the individual meets the criteria for the award; and specific examples of how the nominee's efforts and accomplishments convey an appreciation for diversity, inclusion and/or multiculturalism and add to efforts to promote a more diverse, inclusive and supportive environment for all members of the Johns Hopkins community. In its selection process, the Diversity Award Selection Panel will look for measures of accomplishments and efforts beyond nominees' job descriptions. The nominee should be informed of the nomination.

The Diversity Award Selection Panel, composed of DLC members, will review all nominations and recommend award recipients to President William R. Brody. An awards reception and ceremony will be held from noon to 2 p.m. on Thursday, May 1, in Levering's Glass Pavilion.

The deadline for receiving nominations is Friday, March 14. Forms and supporting documents may be submitted online at or may be mailed to Diversity Recognition Awards, Office of Institutional Equity, The Johns Hopkins University, 130 Garland Hall, 3400 N. Charles St, Baltimore, MD 21218.
