Dream Award nominations

October 16, 2017

The Office of Institutional Diversity is calling for nominations for the President's Fulfilling the Dream Award 2018. The award honors those in the university and Athens-Clarke County communities who are keeping Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s belief in equality and justice alive. Nominations are open until Oct. 29.

The Fulfilling the Dream Award showcases members of the community, faculty, staff and students who advance issues of race relations or human rights. Award winners are dedicated to volunteerism and civic engagement and use King's teachings to reduce tensions between communities and unite people across different cultures and backgrounds.

Recipients of the award are honored at the annual MLK Freedom Breakfast, which will be held Jan. 12 at UGA. The breakfast is held in honor of King's life and legacy and is sponsored by UGA, the Athens-Clarke County Unified Government and the Clarke County School District.

To nominate someone for the award, visit or contact the Office of Institutional Diversity at 706-583-8195.
