The dije awards recognize work to advance diversity, inclusion, justice, and equity within the School of Education, as well as within the broader University of Michigan campus and surrounding communities.
These awards serve an important function: to spotlight the advancement of our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Strategic Plan. They also serve to recognize the individuals whose significant efforts make the advancement of this plan possible; they are typically awarded annually to one SOE student, staff member, and faculty member. Each awardee will receive $500 and a framed certificate from the School of Education acknowledging their contributions. Awardees are also announced in the program and presentation at the Spring Commencement Ceremony.
SOE faculty, staff, and students are invited to submit nominations for deserving candidates for this award by March 8, 5:00 p.m. For further information about the award and how to submit nominations, go to https://soe.umich.edu/dije/awards.

The School of Education is proud to be a leader in the campus-wide initiative promoting Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity. Adding "Justice" to these values underscores the role of educators in the creation of just societies. Through research, public scholarship, community building, and the preparation of education practitioners and policymakers, we articulate and advance our dije agenda.
