Michelle Duster ’85 Receives Dartmouth’s Martin Luther King Jr. Social Justice Award

Classmate Michelle Duster is an oh-so-deserving recipient of this prestigious award from the College. Congratulations Michelle! You may remember one of Michelle’s projects from our Winter 2013 edition of Shades of Green, raising money for a monument to honor Ida B. Wells. The award will be presented January 31st in Hanover.


Dartmouth’s Social Justice Awards, co-sponsored by the Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Committee, Office of Institutional Diversity & Equity, William Jewett Tucker Center, Dartmouth Center for Service, and Geisel School of Medicine, were established to recognize members of the Dartmouth community including alumni/ae, current and former faculty, staff, student groups and others with ties to the college, who have contributed significantly to peace, civil rights, education, public health, environmental justice, or social justice.

The awards honor members of the Dartmouth community who have demonstrated their compassion, perseverance, courage, and leadership by engaging in the difficult work of fostering human dignity and our common humanity through their projects, programs, and visions.
