Diversity Award Recognizes faculty and staff who have advanced the College’s vision for diversity through their teaching, scholarship, service, or campus-community outreach:
• Leslie Hogben, Professor, Department of Mathematics, and Dio Lewis Holl Chair in Applied Mathematics. Hogben has been a strong advocate for diversity in the Department of Mathematics. She has been involved in the recruitment of a diverse graduate student body; thanks to her efforts, in the past four years we have had an increase both in the number of underrepresented students and female graduate students. Hogben has accomplished this by attending conferences geared toward minority students, and has established contacts at universities such as Morehouse College and the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras. In addition to her work in the department, Hogben plays a national role promoting diversity in mathematics through her position as Director of Diversity at the American Institute of Mathematics, a national institute supported by the National Science Foundation.
