Student Advocacy

Karen Green Human Relations Award 

Agnes Scott annually bestows the Karen Green Human Rights Award to two recipients who exemplify the following idea:

"There are certain people in the life of an institution whose presence is transforming ... who build(s) bridges and educate(s) all of us in how to live together in a more fulfilling way."

Named in honor of Karen Green, Agnes Scott alumna and former assistant dean of students, the $300 scholarships awards recognize Scotties who:

  • Empower others to be inclusive leaders
  • Lead initiatives that promote inclusion on campus
  • Demonstrate a history of building bridges between groups, entities, departments, organizations or community members through collaboration

Student Lounge

Our student lounge is just one more way we show our commitment to celebrating and promoting diversity, equity and inclusion. We understand the value of having dedicated spaces on campus where each of us can see a bit of ourselves represented and recognized. Our lounge offers access to technology and a place to study, have group meetings when available or just relax. Contact ascdiversity@agnesscott.edu to reserve.

Social Solidarity Resources for Students in a Time of Distancing

Agnes Scott’s Gay Johnson McDougall Center for Global Diversity and Inclusion hosted four podcast episodes highlighting issues of inequity during the coronavirus pandemic.

The coronavirus pandemic highlights the many inequities affecting our communities — nationwide, globally and even within the Agnes Scott community. In response, Agnes Scott professors and alumnae examine these issues through a series of podcasts about addressing these enormous social challenges.

You can also find this podcast series on iTunes, Spotify and Google Play.
