The Chancellor’s Office and the Office of Inclusion and Outreach at the Anschutz Medical Campus recognizes members of the Anschutz Medical Campus community each year for their efforts in promoting and supporting diversity and diversity efforts on our campuses and beyond.
Sparking the modern civil rights movement in the United States by refusing to give up her bus seat, Rosa Parks' arrest for breaking Montgomery segregation laws started a boycott of the city bus line that lasted 381 days. This eventually led to the 1956 Supreme Court ruling declaring segregation illegal on public buses. Faculty, Staff, and Students are chosen by the Rosa Parks Diversity Committee, in the spirit of Rosa Parks, for their services to the University.
Diversity & Excellence Grants are designed to provide assistance for projects initiated by staff and/or faculty that promote diversity, inclusion and excellence on the campuses. Multiple awards of up to $3,000 each will be made. Funding will be granted for a maximum of one year; however, projects demonstrating progress may be re-submitted for consideration for continued funding.
