Lavender Awards

The LGBTQA & Social Justice Center was pleased to honor Harriet R. Feldman, PhD, RN, FAAN, with the distinguished Trailblazer Award for her integral role in making the LGBTQA & Social Justice Center a reality at Pace University.   During her tenure as Interim Provost, Dr. Feldman responded to the need for increased support services for LGBTQA students on all Pace campuses and approved a proposal for the addition of a center at Pace.  In line with Pace's commitment to build a culture of community and to create vibrant, distinctive and collegial campus identities, Dr. Feldman's actions exemplify the type of leadership and advocacy that elevates campuses and creates equity for all.  Due to Dr. Feldman's work, students, staff, faculty and alumni continue to have an administratively supported center that is committed to creating safety and equity for all Pace community members regardless of perceived or actual sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.
