The Silent Leader Award is presented annually to a student who demonstrates exceptional and sustained dedication to enacting change through service. The recipient of this award does not accept the world as it stands, but rather actively challenges ideological, societal constructions in an incessant pursuit of equity. In doing so, this person’s work is broad reaching and engages the campus, the community, and often the world at large.
The Silent Leader Award is given in memory of Emily Silverstein ’11. Emily was a passionate member of the campus community and a fervent advocate for peace. To carry forward Emily’s dream of a more just world, the Silent Leader also is presented with a financial award in order to act on or to pursue further education about critical social justice issues.
We are accepting nominations from now until Thursday, September 14, 2017.
The Silent Leader Award will be presented during Fall Honors Day on October 27, 2017.
