Dorothy Stang Award 

The Dorothy Stang Award may be conferred on one graduating senior who best exemplifies devotion to the good of the wider community as reflected in the life of Dorothy Stang, a member of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, the founders of Stevenson University. Stang’s commitment to bringing social justice to the underprivileged in Brazil led to her murder. The award honors integrity, courage in the face of adversity, and a willingness to act on convictions without regard to consequence. Embodying the most cherished values that an education from Stevenson University instills in its students, the recipient of the Stang Award reaches out to members of the community who have financial, spiritual, social, or cultural needs. Our recipient is a "reflective and accomplished individual committed to a lifetime of learning and contribution" (Stevenson University Mission Statement).
