Dr. Mia Moody-Ramirez

Dr. Mia Moody-Ramirez, the 2012 BU Diversity Award Recipient, is described as “a tireless worker on behalf of diversity in both academia and in the mainstream world, a living, breathing example of acceptance, and a real inspiration to many of us.” She was one of the first academic’s to apply quantifiable research and scholarship to the world of new media and race and gender relations. She is widely published in journals and articles, serves on panels, presents at conferences and symposiums, she is active with the Journalism, PR & New Media department and the university at large, continues to make strides in her field with cutting-edge research, and serves as a mentor to many African American students regardless of major.

Four letters of support were submitted with her nomination from her colleagues across campus and we are happy to award Dr. Moody-Ramirez with this year’s diversity award.
