The Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine (VTCSOM) recently honored 13 inaugural recipients of the Dean’s Diversity Champion Awards. These awards recognize the significant achievements of students, faculty and staff toward developing a more diverse, equitable and inclusive community.
“We are proud of our school’s continued progress in diversity, equity and inclusion, and we recognize that this is a shared effort and priority,” said Lee Learman, dean of VTCSOM. “It is truly wonderful to see our students, faculty and staff approaching a united goal from their own unique perspectives and through different initiatives. These award winners are making our school and community a more inclusive place.”
Students, faculty and staff nominated the recipients, who were then selected by the school’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion team. Award winners were selected for their volunteer work in the community, their mentorship of students, for establishing student clubs, for developing anti-bias training and much more. Details of their nominations are available on the Dean’s Diversity Champion Award webpage.
