The Karen Green Human Rights Award


Karen Green '86

The Karen Green Human Rights Award is given annually 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 alumnae and former Assistant Dean of Students, the scholarship awards of $300 each are presented to two students who empower others to be inclusive leaders, lead initiatives that promote inclusion on campus, and demonstrate a history of building bridges between groups, entities, departments, organizations, or community members via collaboration.
