The Mississippi Board of Trustees of the State Institutions of Higher Learning hosted the Annual Diversity and Inclusion Awards virtually on Feb. 18 to celebrate Black History Month. The Diversity Awards are set up to acknowledge and applaud university and community leaders in their efforts in advancing diversity and encouraging respect.
During the virtual ceremony, two Mississippi State University assistant professors, Qiana M. Cutts, Ph.D. and Derris D. Burnett, Ph.D., were honored for their work in furthering diversity and inclusion at MSU.
