The Top Owl Social Justice Award is given to recognize contributions in helping our University achieve our mission of creating and sustaining an inclusive community that appreciates, celebrates and advances student and campus diversity at Southern Connecticut State University.
The DEI Advisory Council at Southern is seeking nominations for the Top Owls Social Justice Awards that will be presented in the 2022-2023 academic year — one award per month in December, January, February, March, and April. The Top Owls will be publicly recognized on campus and receive a certificate and an honorary Social Justice pin. The awards recognize the contributions, leadership and service of deserving part-time and full-time faculty, staff, and students for upholding Southern’s core values of dignity, respect, kindness, compassion and civility. Awardees are individuals who contribute to promoting the principles of human rights, social justice and anti-racism at Southern Connecticut State University.
