Congratulations to Dr. Tarajean Yazzie-Mintz (Diné), our former colleague who served as vice president for program initiatives at the American Indian College Fund, who was named the 2020 Brock Prize in Education Innovation Laureate.
MARCH 16, 2020 UPDATE. BROCK PRIZE SYMPOSIUM RESCHEDULED FOR LATER DATE THIS FALL.
Hello Brock Prize Friends,
With the March 26th Brock Symposium and award dinner rapidly approaching, we have been closely monitoring the situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19) and have been in discussions with our university partners and our Laureate to make a decision about our scheduled events.
Due to an abundance of caution and in consideration of the strong possibility of university closures and difficulties with air travel (which could affect many of our Symposium speakers and guests), we have made the decision to reschedule the Brock Prize Symposium as well as our award dinner for later this fall. We will communicate the new date as soon as it is finalized.
We look forward to highlighting Dr. Yazzie-Mintz’s work at our upcoming Symposium, and are optimistic that a rescheduled date will give more people the opportunity to safely participate in this important event.
Dr. Ed Harris Brock Prize Administrator
