Celebration is going virtual in 2021!

Join us for Celebration, the UW’s signature event recognizing diversity, equity and inclusion hosted by the Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity and the Friends of the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP). Registration information for this virtual event to follow.


This scholarship fundraiser honors the academic excellence of EOP students and the Charles E. Odegaard Award recipient.

This year’s recipient is Emile Pitre, ’69. As a UW graduate student in the 1960s, Pitre was a founding member of the UW Black Student Union whose calls for equity to then-President Odegaard led to the establishment of OMA&D. Since then, he has spent over three decades with the organization, serving in various roles including tenures as director of the Instructional Center and associate vice president for assessment.
