Kinder and Evert win Dougherty & Inclusion Award
Two Southwestern Oklahoma State University faculty members were recently honored with an award--Dougherty Diversity & Inclusion Award.
The Dougherty Award was named in the honor of the late Dean of Students Cindy Dougherty. Because of Dougherty’s continuous efforts of promoting multiculturalism at SWOSU, current Dean of Students Joshua Engle formed the award to honor a SWOSU employee for their efforts of advocating for cultural diversity.
Dr. Chad Kinder is an award recipient and was recognized by a vote of the students. He was one of 17 nominees among SWOSU faculty. Kinder is Dean of the College of Professional and Graduate Studies.
Dr. Amanda Evert, associate professor in the Everett Dobson School of Business & Technology, was selected for completing the Diversity & Inclusion Professional Development program at SWOSU. She completed all three tiers of the program, adding a diversity component to her curriculum.
