Recognition

The diverse and unique perspectives of the faculty and staff have made UMMS a leading academic health services center. There are many individuals who work to advance our diversity and inclusion goals and who uphold the values of civility. Each year, the Chancellor recognizes an individual or group that best exemplifies these values and presents these awards at our annual Martin Luther King Day Celebration in January.
