Davenport University has received the Hispanic Advocate Award from the Committee to Honor César E. Chávez for its continued work on evolving diversity initiatives. Davenport University was recognized at the 10th Annual César E. Chávez Hispanic Excellence Awards on Thursday, Oct. 16 at the Cultural Center.
Davenport received the award due to the University’s demonstrated commitment to the ideals of César E. Chávez and our continued support of the local committee, which includes incorporating its initiatives into Davenport’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion programs.
Also, Dave Veneklase, EVP for Organizational Development, and Rhae-Ann Booker, Executive Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, were involved in the formation of the Unity Committee, composed of area colleges, universities, schools and community leaders to advance the interests of Hispanic communities. For the third consecutive year, DU is awarding a four-year Si Se Puede Scholarship.
