Hope for the Future Award

MSU Denver’s Hope for the Future Award honors Dr. Rachel B. Noel’s distinguished legacy as a warrior of the civil rights movement and her effort to integrate Denver’s public schools. We are seeking nominations to recognize and honor two individuals who have walked in Professor Rachel B. Noel’s shoes by promoting equal rights, education, community service and inclusive excellence for all. We are particularly interested in nominees who can demonstrate measurable progress in promoting inclusiveness, equality, diversity, and multiculturalism. Their efforts may involve, but are not limited to, active civic engagement, institutional leadership, and academic scholarship that has contributed substantially to Rachel B. Noel’s vision of progressive social change. Recipients will be honored at the annual Rachel B. Noel Awards Ceremony.


Rachel B. Noel Scholarship

MSU Denver is seeking applications for the Rachel B. Noel scholarship. This scholarship was named in memory of Dr. Rachel B. Noel, the first African American elected to the Denver Public School Board, and who leaves behind a distinguished legacy in her effort to integrate Denver’s public schools with the Noel Resolution passed in 1970. The Rachel B. Noel scholarship will recognize MSU Denver students, who have carried on Rachel B. Noel’s legacy and served as an exemplary model for fellow MSU Denver students. These exemplary activities may involve, but are not limited to: active community service, diversity advocacy efforts inside and/or outside of the campus community, and academic excellence that echoes Rachel B. Noel’s emphasis on the importance of education. Recipients will also be honored at the annual Rachel B. Noel Awards Ceremony.
