The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh College of Letters and Science Equity, Diversity and Inclusive Climate (EDIC) committee has named four students as the winners of the I-RISE Awards for the month of November.
The winners are:

- Kev Kollmann, a senior theatre arts major from Fond du Lac

The monthly I-RISE Awards—named for resilience, inspiration, strength and excellence—applaud UW Oshkosh students who have demonstrated resilience in the face of adversity, yet continue to advocate for equity, diversity and inclusion on the Oshkosh, Fond du Lac and Fox Cities campuses.
Do you know a student who has overcome adversity and continues to advocate for a more equitable and inclusive campus environment? The EDIC committee is now accepting nominations for the December I-RISE awards. Submissions are due by 5 p.m. Dec. 28.
