2017 Chancellor Award for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Leadership
e-Nomination Letter Form
Diversity, equity and inclusion are inextricably linked to UCSF's mission of patient care, research, education and UCSF faculty, staff, students and trainees are actively engaged in efforts to promote equity and inclusion in multiple local, regional and global settings. Each year this award recognizes and honors three individuals at UCSF—one faculty, one staff, one student/resident/postdoctoral scholar—who have demonstrated outstanding commitment and service to the ideals of diversity, equity, and inclusion beyond the scope of their job, area of research, or training.
Nominees will be evaluated per the following criteria:
Base of Operations—demonstrates emerging or sustained commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts proportionate to their capacity to do so (some employees in higher level positions/jobs may have a greater capacity to perform this service more visibly than those in lower level positions).
Scope & Effort—demonstrates exceptional efforts beyond the scope of the nominee’s job, research or training in promoting an environment that is free of bias and discrimination and advances goals of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Impact—demonstrates that their diversity, equity and inclusion efforts have resulted in long-term benefits to recipients and community at large or are a potential model for the establishment of other programs or activities.
