NOMINATIONS ACCEPTED FOR THOMAS PRIZE IN DIVERSITY
The Office of Intercultural Affairs is now accepting nominations for the 2006 Hayley S. Thomas Prize in Diversity, Director of Intercultural Affairs Christopher MacDonald-Dennis has announced. The prize was established last year to honor the memory of the much-loved dean and acting director of institutional diversity, who became an invaluable resource to Bryn Mawr students before the community lost her to stomach cancer in 2004, when she was just 32 years old.
The prize, says MacDonald-Dennis, will honor students who personify the characteristics that Dean Thomas exemplified: "life-long learning around diversity, demonstrated commitment to and advocacy for inclusion, and the ability to inspire others to actions."
Bryn Mawr students, faculty and staff members may nominate as many students as they like for the Thomas Prize. Students who accept the nomination will be required to submit a résumé, recommendation and a response to a question in 250 words or less. Up to three recipients will be selected by the Thomas Prize Committee consisting of members of faculty, staff, students and the Thomas family. Prize recipients will receive a $500 award.
The 2006 Thomas Prize will be awarded on April 30 at May Day convocation.
If you would like to nominate student(s) for this prize, please complete and send either the attached nomination form via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or via campus mail attn: Peaches Valdes/Thomas Prize, Multicultural Center, Cambrian Row.
The deadline for all nominations is March 17, 2006. Nominees will be notified shortly thereafter.
