Strategic Plan Progress Report Out April 2021

Committee Name: Awards Committee

Committee Members: Katherine Magnuson, Latoya Kirton, Laura Dresser, Jooyoung Kong, Yang Xiong, Tally Moses, Lauren Bishop, Cindy Waldeck, Russ Portier, Jaime Goldberg

Strategic Plan Goal: Increase the diversity of our students, faculty, staff, and other governing bodies.

Objective 1: Revise Rosenbaum Scholarship questions to prioritize applicants from historically underrepresented groups, who contribute to the diversity of our community and remove barriers to apply

Progress on goal since February 2021

  1. The Awards Committee discussed changes to the Rosenbaum Application for Summer/Fall 2022 application cycle to prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion. We will be finalizing these decisions at an upcoming meeting in the Spring 2021 semester. We also plan to include additional questions on the application, including first generation college student status.
  2. For the Full-Time Rosenbaum Scholarship decisions, our 3 awardees are BIPOC women, and all the awardees accepted their offer of admission.
