Angel Dorantes among those honored at 2020 MLK Awards ceremony



Angel Dorantes

CLLAS affiliated faculty Angel Dorantes, undergraduate advising and retention coordinator in the College of Education, was one of two people to receive the Outstanding Diversity Practitioner award at the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. awards ceremony held this year on Jan. 16 in the Erb Memorial Union ballroom at UO. Celena Simpson, assistant director of Pathway Oregon in the Tutoring and Academic Engagement Center, also received this award.

From Around the O:

“The Outstanding Diversity Practitioner award recognizes and celebrates colleagues on campus whose primary responsibility is in the area of diversity, equity and inclusion, but who go above and beyond the scope of their role. They are recognized due to their relentless support, advocacy and overall impact, both on and beyond campus

“Dorantes nomination was spurred by his research, teaching and service, particularly on and for UO Latinx students, including co-authoring a peer-reviewed article used by university executives to ‘address issues, challenges and opportunities to better serve Latinx students at the UO.’

“He served as the inaugural faculty advisor for the Latinx Male Student Alliance, which has grown from 20 to 60 participants since 2017, and has held college information workshops for more than 500 Latinx high school students. In 2018, he was awarded the Professional Advisor of the Year award and was then appointed to the All-Campus Advising Association Executive Committee to enhance advising universitywide.”
