Nominate someone for a Martin Luther King, Jr. Service Award

Dear all,

Happy New Year everyone!

I am writing regarding Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, which is on January 21st, 2019. As we prepare to reflect on Dr. King’s legacy, let us also consider the contributions of the people who surrounded Dr. King and helped define, shape, and implement his vision. These included Bayard Rustin, Stanley Levison, and Ella Baker (see attached for more information on these remarkable individuals). 
 
As we honor some of the people who supported and contributed to Dr. King’s impact let us also acknowledge members of the Vassar community who work every day to create a more compassionate, equitable, and inclusive campus community.

We invite you to nominate employees (staff, faculty, and administrators) you supervise, advise, or know of who you think make special contributions to our campus. Please submit nominations here by Wednesday January 16th.

Awardees will be recognized at a breakfast on Monday, January 21st.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,

Elizabeth H. Bradley, President
