Club Brasileiro Award for Outstanding Organization

Its executive officers model leadership, organizational ethics/responsibility, professional development and advocacy for their organization members and for their peers across campus. This winning organization shows exemplary commitment to diversity and to building the University community, and it provides underrepresented students with an additional source of support. It also serves as a strong model for any group working with and serving underrepresented students.
