Nominations Invited for the American Historical Association’s Equity Awards

Debbie Doyle | Apr 9, 2014

The American Historical Association seeks nominations for its Equity Awards, which recognize individuals and institutions that have demonstrated an exceptional record in recruiting and retaining students and new faculty from racial and ethnic groups underrepresented within the historical profession. Nominations are due by May 15.

Deserving nominees will have records that include such achievements as mentoring, program building, fundraising initiatives, pursuing civic engagement, and enhancing department and campus culture to promote a supportive environment. The AHA gives two awards annually: one for individuals and another for academic units. For details and instructions for submitting a nomination, see: http://historians.org/awards-and-grants/awards-and-prizes/equity-award

The award is honorary and is designed to publicize efforts to diversify the profession.
