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

The winners are:

  • Sara Clay, a first-year student studying electrical engineering technology from Buffalo Grove, Illinois
  • Tracy Schabel, a first-year student from Fond du Lac pursuing an associate degree on the Fond du Lac campus
  • Jocelyn Tapia, a junior physical education major from Oshkosh

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 May. Submit your nomination (using your UWO email address) by 5 p.m. May 20.
