Jacob Green Memorial Prize

Jacob Green (1998-2019)

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.

This year we are proud to present the inaugural Jacob Green Memorial Prize to Javier Garcia III. READ MORE

  • Dedication to building a loving, inclusive, and welcoming community on campus
  • Commitment to serving communities of color on and off campus
  • Willingness to speak truth to power and to question and challenge assumptions
  • Ability to juggle college with work on or off campus
  • Leadership that lifts up the leadership of others
