Dr. Hayley S. Thomas

Dr. Hayley S. Thomas joined the Bryn Mawr community as an Assistant Dean and later became the Acting Director of the College's Office of Institutional Diversity. During her time here, she became an invaluable resource through her facilitation of mentoring programs, direction of diversity seminars and — most importantly — her tireless dedication to supporting Bryn Mawr students. Sadly, the Bryn Mawr Community lost Dean Thomas to cancer in March of 2004.

 

 

 

 

 

With this prize, the College community honors those students who personify the characteristics that Dean Thomas exemplified:

  • Lifelong learning around diversity
  • Demonstrated commitment to and advocacy for inclusion and
  • The ability to inspire others to action
