The 2023 Inclusion and Equity Awards were presented on Wednesday, March 15,  at the DICE Awards event at the Berman Museum.

The Awards

Each year, the college honors students, faculty, and staff who have gone the extra mile to advance inclusion and equity at Ursinus with the Annual Inclusion Awards. Starting in 2020, presentations were made by Heather Lobban-Viravong, vice president for inclusion and community engagement during the Spring Awards event hosted by Academic Affairs. With the creation of the new Division of Inclusion and Community Engagement in 2022, the annual awards are now done independently, with the addition of the Sycamore Community Engagement Award.
