The Law School has been named the first runner-up in a campus-wide competition for the 2008 President's Diversity Vision Award. The College of Arts and Sciences won the award, while the School of Nursing was the second runner-up. The award is intended to recognize cumulative efforts to advance diversity and inclusion at our university.
As the first runner-up, the Law School will receive $5,000.
