Description

Treva Lindsey, Associate Professor in WGSS, recently received the 2019 Diversity Enhancement Faculty Award from the College of Arts and Sciences!

The Diversity Enhancement Faculty Award is annually awarded by the College of Arts and Sciences to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of any faculty member or team of faculty members in the College of Arts and Sciences whose research, teaching and/or service/outreach activities promote diversity and support a culture that embraces and exhibits inclusive excellence, community, and openness.

Throughout her time at the university, Dr. Lindsey’s research, teaching, and service have promoted a culture of excellence, diversity and inclusion both on and off-campus. Her work focuses on Black feminist theory, Black popular culture, and African American women’s history, reflected in her recently published book, Colored No More: Reinventing Black Womanhood in Washington, D.C. (2017). This year, she continues to teach WGSS courses, shape the department’s undergraduate program as chair of the Undergraduate Studies Committee, co-chair the NWSA Women of Color Leadership Project, and run a monthly Black Feminist Working Group for campus members.

Congratulations to Dr. Lindsey on this achievement, and thank you for the you work do!
