DeLand, FL – Patrick Coggins, Ph.D., J.D., Ed.S., LL.D, chair of the Faculty Senate and member of the President’s Cabinet at Stetson University, has received the 2017 ‘Giving Back Award’ from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine.

According to Stetson University, the honor is the only national award that recognizes college and university administrators for their commitment and dedication to diversity through leadership. Coggins and 38 other recipients will be featured in the April 2017 Leadership Support and Giving Back issue of the magazine.

Coggins, who is a professor of education and multicultural education at the College, was nominated for the award for his dedication and devotion to inclusivity and diversity within the Stetson campus, the education system, the community and the world, said Stetson University.

“The Giving Back Award is awarded to leaders of institutions of higher education who exemplify what it truly means to ‘give back’ to others,” said Holly Mendelson, publisher of INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine. “These administrators are role models, and we honor their efforts to promote diversity and inclusion on their campuses and in their communities.”
