Latinx Distinguished Service Award

The Latinx Distinguished Service Award recognizes faculty member, administrator, or staff member for their outstanding service in keeping with the principles and ideals of Latinx culture through their research or service. 

While the award is a tremendous honor, it also carries a $1,000 stipend for the recipient. This year we will seek to honor a faculty or a staff member for their contributions throughout our community to promote our Latinx culture. The inaugural Distinguished Service Award recipient will be announced at FSU’s Latinx Cultural Celebration on Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2019 at 11 a.m. in Ruby Diamond Auditorium.
