Nominate an Advocate for Peace Today

Mar 30, 2012

Nominations are now being accepted for University of the Pacific's "Enough Is Enough" annual awards!  We are seeking nominees who have demonstrated a commitment to social justice and to advancing peace in our campus and/or local community.  Nominations may be made in the following categories: student (undergraduate or graduate); faculty; staff/administration; and community leader or community-based organization. 

To make a nomination, please write a brief letter of support explaining how the individual or community-based organization has contributed to advancing the goals of social justice and peace on campus or in the Stockton community.  Send nomination letters to Dr. Lisa Cooper, Assistant Vice President of Diversity and Community Engagement at lcooper@pacific.edu no later than Friday, April 6th.

"Enough Is Enough" (EIE) is a national campaign that seeks to develop and implement solutions to campus and community violence.  EIE is a program of NASPA, the national professional association of student life administrators.

Last year, EIE recognized Professor Susan Giraldez for her contributions to the University's response to campus sexual violence, undergraduate Ginny Durakovich for her leadership in organizing the candlelight vigil for Rutgers' University student Tyler Clementi, and With Our Words, Inc., a Stockton community youth organization.

This year's honorees will be celebrated at a dinner during Enough-is-Enough Week during the week of April 16th.

For more information about nominating a student, faculty, staff/administrator or community leader or organization, contact Dr. Lisa Cooper at lcooper@pacific.edu.  Please forward this information to others in the Pacific and local community.
