A roll-call of this year’s Excellence in Teaching, EAPS Achievement, Crosby, and Goetze Award recipients and the EAPS Community Builder Award presented on May 26, during the EAPS Commencement Celebration Reception. 

The EAPS Community Builder Award
In recognition of EAPS community member(s) or group(s) for exceptional service that benefits EAPS. This service can be in the form of DEI initiatives, mentorship, outreach, and more. The recipient(s) will have shown dedication towards service that ensures justice, equity, diversity and inclusion in the work they do. Awardees will be recognized on a plaque in the Ida Green Lounge. In addition, awardees can utilize a grant of up to $1000 for an activity they would like to organize for the EAPS department (e.g., event, speaker) and coordinate this with the DEI-C. Awardees will also have the opportunity to use a DLS timeslot.
