HGSE's Intellectual Contribution Award honorees for 2023 were nominated by their classmates based on who inspired them, helped them gain a different perspective on education's challenges, and contributed to shared learning and intellectual growth in and out of the classroom. Each program's faculty directors, in consultation with other faculty and staff, selected the final honorees for their program based on the nominations and on demonstrated academic success.
During the HGSE Convocation ceremony on Wednesday, May 24, Dean Bridget Long will present this year’s recipients with a certificate of recognition and a gold honor cord to wear during the Commencement ceremonies on Thursday, May 25.
Here, the 2023 Intellectual Contribution Award winners describe their personal journeys, what HGSE means to them, and the impact they hope to make on the field of education.
