Jackson Award thumbnailAlthough people of color suffering under interlocking systems of oppression — such as impoverished and working-class residents of disinvested urban or rural communities — bear the largest population health burdens in the United States, the magnitude of racialized health inequity is often greatest among college graduates. Whether predominantly white universities are simply failing to address the greater structurally-rooted health needs of students of color or are — however inadvertently — contributing to them, new holistic DEI efforts have an urgent role to play toward promoting health equity.

The James S. Jackson Distinguished Career Award for Diversity Scholarship recognizes a senior faculty member at the University of Michigan who has made important contributions to understanding diversity, equity, and inclusion through research, scholarship and creative endeavors, who has an outstanding record as an educator in teaching and mentoring, and whose work has focused on issues of importance to underrepresented communities.
