The Chancellor's Awards for Public Service honor individuals and groups for their exceptional commitment to advancing social change through public service, a pillar of the university's public mission. Annually, thousands of students, staff, and faculty devote hundreds of thousands of hours to direct service to the community, and even more hours to research and partnerships that serve the public interest. This year, two students from our department won this recognition. They will serve as a representative of the university (including the Chancellor) at the event and in media.
Michael Piña won the Mather Good Citizen Award for his contribution to the community.
Naniette Coleman won the Robert J. and Mary Catherine Birgeneau Recognition Award for Service to Underrepresented Students.
