BW Awards

The Professor David Prok Humanitarian Award for Social Justice in Sex and Gender Diversity

Instituted by Professor David Prok of BW's Department of Sociology, this award is presented each year at the College's Honors Day Ceremony. The award is given to members of the faculty, staff or student body who make Baldwin Wallace University more hospitable, safe and accepting of minority members within the BW community. By their own life example, they push back the frontiers of prejudice, bigotry and ignorance relative to diversity. By their activities and engagement, they educate, instruct and inform the larger community of the need for acceptance, celebration and respect for persons of minority status in our society.

Individuals do not apply for the Humanitarian Award.  Recipients are selected by a committee whose decisions are based on observed and documented contributions to the cause of social justice as outlined above.
