Jill E. Carnaghi, Ph.D., assistant vice chancellor for students and director of campus life, and Michael G. Brown, coordinator of the Office for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Student Involvement and Leadership, were recognized with awards from the American College Personnel Association (ACPA) at its annual spring convention in Atlanta.
Carnaghi was presented with the Esther Lloyd-Jones Professional Service Award, which “honors a member of the profession or association who has exemplified the profession’s commitment to service through significant, continued and unselfish service/leadership activities that have benefited the profession, ACPA and the profession’s practice on the state and national level.”
“It’s always an honor as well as a humbling experience to be nominated and recognized by your peers,” Carnaghi said. “I have received much more professionally and personally from my work with ACPA than I have ever contributed. I have grown up in this association and have benefited greatly from many incredible folks who have taught and shown me what it means to truly serve students through our working with them in their co-curricular activities. It means a lot that our office has been recognized this way.”
Brown received the Val DuMontier New Professional Award for his commitment to the ACPA Standing Committee for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Awareness and to the LGBT community at large.
Formerly an equity and social justice educator and coordinator for men’s outreach at Iowa State University, Brown joined WUSTL in spring 2007 as coordinator of the newly established LGBT office.
