In honor of Jacob Green (1998-2019) the Race and Ethnic Studies program in the College of Arts and Sciences introduces the Jacob Green Memorial Prize for Building Racial Justice and Inclusive Communities.
The Jacob Green Memorial Prize will recognize up to two CAS undergraduate students every year who promote the values that Jacob embodied—a commitment to racial justice, equality, and leadership in order to build a loving, inclusive community at the University of Redlands. Students from all years are eligible to be nominated. These prizes will pass the torch of racial justice leadership from one generation of students to the next.
We encourage students, faculty, and staff across campus to nominate students who embody Jacob’s legacy and values, especially those first-generation students of color who follow in Jacob’s footsteps. We will prioritize awarding the prize to students who demonstrate:
2022 David Hazward
2021 Montserrat Pineda
2020 Inaugural Winner Javier Garcia III
