Student Development Administration students Michal (MJ) Jones and Cobretti Williams will both receive the 2014 Spirit of Community Graduate Student Award. The awards will be presented at the 10th Annual Spirit of Community Celebration of the Center for Service and Community Engagement on May 15 in the Campion Ballroom. The award recognizes a student who demonstrates service to the community with dedication, integrity, humility, thoughtful leadership, compassion and soul, and a deep understanding of social justice.
A graduate assistant in the SDA program, MJ Jones, SDA ’14, has developed and provided staff training and student programming on a variety of social justice topics including identity development, examination of stereotypes and socialization, and ally-ship, and serves as an intergroup dialogue facilitator on queer and trans identity and related issues for SDA graduate students. MJ’s community activities include recreation leader for Seattle Parks and Recreation’s LGBT teen programs and member of the board of directors for ThreeWings/Queer Youth Space. “I am inspired by MJ’s authentic community commitment with a critically underserved population of youth in our community,” SDA Program Director Erin Sweezy wrote in her nomination letter.
A graduate research assistant for SDA Associate Professor Erica Yamamura, Corbretti Williams, SDA ’14, has worked extensively with the Seattle University Youth Initiative (SUYI), including designing and implementing two workshops: college access for Middle College High School students and a multicultural competence workshop for undergraduates engaging in SUYI work. He has played a leadership role in implementing InterGroup Dialogue within SDA, and addressed systemic inclusion of underrepresented groups through research and service. He has collaborated with Dr. Yamamura on research on improving the pipeline for racial/ethnic minorities, students with disabilities and LGBTQIA students, and then shared best practices at three national conferences. In her nomination letter, Dr. Yamamura wrote: “Cobretti… aims to empower students and his peers to uncover and explore issues of privilege, power, and opportunity to create a more socially just learning environment through research and direct service.”
All are welcome to attend the Spirit of Community Celebration, which takes place from 4-5:30 p.m. on May 15 in Campion Ballroom. Find out more details about the celebration here. RSVP here.
