Nominations sought for 2024 Fulfilling the Dream  Award


The University of Nebraska–Lincoln is seeking nominations for the 2024 Chancellor’s “Fulfilling the Dream” Award.

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spent his life working to eliminate poverty, racism and militarism through non-violent means. The university remains committed to diversity and the ideals advocated by Dr. King. This award was established in 1997 to honor individuals who have contributed to the university community or the wider Lincoln community by their exemplary action in promoting the goals and vision of Dr. King.

The awards are presented each January during ceremonies at the university’s celebration of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday. This year, the ceremony is scheduled for Jan. 30.

Nominations are strongly encouraged and may be submitted by all members of the university and the community at large.

Nominations should be submitted by Nov. 17, to the MLK Week Planning Committee. The awards subcommittee will review the nominations and make recommendations for the final selections to the MLK Week Planning Committee and Chancellor Rodney Bennett.

More information on the 2024 MLK Week can be found online or by contacting the MLK Week Committee at mlkweek@unl.edu.
