Continuing another tradition, the campus gave out its Excellence in Diversity Awards to two individuals – one from the campus and one from the community – who have demonstrated a genuine commitment to diversity and inclusiveness.

This year’s award recipients were: Raymond Petren, Ph.D., assistant professor of human development and family studies (HDFS), who has been involved in a number of campus diversity initiatives; and Scranton resident Glynis M. Johns, founder of the Black Scranton Project.
