Our very own Ann Abbott has been the recipient of the inaugural 2021 Xiaohui Zhang Diversity and Community Engagement Award! This award, which is open to both faculty and students, recognizes an SLCL member who has contributed to the School's mission of promoting a diverse, inclusive, and engaged academic community, and who has facilitated meaningful connections between the School and the wider community, in a spirit of partnership, respect, and reciprocity. As the Head of Spanish and Portuguese, Mariselle Meléndez observes, "this is indeed a well-deserved recognition of Ann’s long commitment to community engagement through the classes she has created, through her mentoring of students, through her research and through her impactful community outreach."
Congrats Ann! We are proud of you!
