Building Community Awards

Building Community Awards recognizes the contributions of individuals within the University community who have shown outstanding service regarding lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer+ (LGBTQ+) concerns. The Building Community Award honors nominees who are active participants in improving the climate of diversity and inclusion for LGBTQ+ people at UC Merced. We accept nominations across campus and recognize all nominees, with special recognition going to one faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate for going above and beyond in advancing and supporting the LGBTQ+ community. The Building Community Awards Ceremony will be hosted annually during Pride Week at UC Merced.
