Call for Nominations: AOCC Tina Hansar Award for Educational Equity
The 2019 Alumni of Color Conference awards annually an HGSE staff member who has demonstrated commitment to educational equity in the spirit of Tina Hansar. Christine “Tina” Hansar had a long and fulfilling career in student services at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) where she was loved by students and colleagues. Specifically, she was instrumental in the successful acclimation of many students of color to the HGSE environment through her kindness, compassion, and empathy for the challenges minoritized students face in predominantly white institutions. She was a true advocate for student initiatives and played key roles in student-initiated events to honor the personal, political, and intellectual assets that these students bring to educational organizing and knowledge-building. In her honor, the Christine “Tina” L. Hansar Award for Commitment to Educational Equity recognizes the work of a current HGSE staff member who demonstrates Tina’s advocacy for student-led initiatives to transform the HGSE environment and education broadly in the pursuit for equity and excellence.

This year's award will go to an HGSE staff member who exemplifies the values of this year's theme, "Homecoming: Past, Present & Future." The award recipient will exhibit strength in at least one of four categories:

1) their perspectives of identity and/or cultural identities that shed light on issues most salient to them.
2) their work in highlighting the inter-connectedness of power, privilege, and oppression.
3) their personal/ professional work that explore the current and historical narratives and educational experiences of previously “unseen” groups such as rural students, Arab/Arab American, Middle Eastern, first generation college students, undocumented students, African Diaspora, immigrants, students with disabilities, religious minorities, globalization, storytelling and empowerment, changing demography of the US, and other suppressed and oppressed voices of today.
4) the valuable work they have done that encompass best practices for working with and within communities to improve the educational and life outcomes for ALL students.

All nominations must be submitted by Friday, February 15th at 11:59pm
