Britt Yamamoto Wins Diversity Award
Britt Yamamoto, Ph.D., visiting faculty in the MA Programs in Leadership and Change (CCC), will receive the Alliance Diversity Award from the Adult Higher Education Alliance (AHEA).
The Diversity Award scholarship recognizes young faculty of color in alternative degree programs that serve adult learners. Yamamoto teaches in the M.A. in Environment and Community program at Antioch University Seattle.
“It is a great honor to receive this award from an organization that consists of people all across the country who are engaged in action learning, reflection and discussion and are united by a common commitment to adult students, adult education professionals, alternative degree programs for adults and research supporting adult higher education,” said Yamamoto when learning of the award.
The scholarship includes registration fees and up to $1,000 for related expenses to attend the AHEA conference Oct. 10 to 12, 2007, in Dayton, Ohio. Yamamoto, along with CCC faculty member Don Comstock, will present a paper entitled “Social Reflection for Social Change: Preparing Adult Learners to be Change Leaders” and conduct a workshop at the conference.
