National Honor for Dean of Student Life Holly Sateia

Holly Sateia, a longtime Dartmouth administrator who is currently dean of student life and senior associate dean of the College, was presented with the Revis A. Cox Memorial Award by the Association of College Unions International (ACUI) in March. The award is given to a student affairs professional in recognition of his or her commitment to multicultural education.

Sateia first came to Dartmouth in 1974 and has created programs including the Leadership Discovery Program, which trains first-year students to be inclusive and ethical leaders, and the Diversity Peer Program, which provides information, support, and skills to students committed to social justice and community.

Most recently, she oversaw the creation of the Office of Pluralism and Leadership (OPAL), combining and augmenting Dartmouth's support for a range of diverse student communities. The ACUI is an organization of more than 3,200 higher education professionals from more than 600 institutions.
