The Milan-Harris Award for Promoting Diversity

Sponsored by the Delta Pi chapter of Phi Beta Delta

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” - Mahatma Gandhi

Retired Professor of Education Jesse Milan, a valued member of the Baker University faculty since 1969 and founder of Mungano, and former Assistant Professor of Spanish Emmanuel Harris, II, a Founding Member of the Delta Pi chapter of Phi Beta Delta and a member of the Baker faculty from 1998-2000, were both active facilitators for change at Baker and within its surrounding communities during their tenure here at Baker. Their actions promoted and enhanced the many dimensions of diversity within these communities. To honor these contributions, the Delta Pi chapter of Phi Beta Delta has established an award to recognize a current Baker University student who has followed in Professors Milan’s and Harris’ footsteps and actively promoted and enhanced the cultural, racial, ethnic, lifestyle and/or generational diversity at Baker and/or within its regional communities.
