Dec. 9, 2022

The University Center for Human Values is delighted to announce that Melissa Lane, director of the University Center for Human Values and Class of 1943 Professor of Politics, received the 2022 Community Engagement Faculty Award in recognition of her commitment to service and civic engagement. The award is conferred by the John H. Pace Jr. '39 Center for Civic Engagement at Princeton University.  Professor Lane was cited to receive the award for her leadership of Princeton University's Service and Civic Engagement Task Force, and her work supporting the development and execution of The Organizing Praxis Lab,  a collaboration between the Pace Center and UCHV.  

Community Engagement Awards "are given to Princeton University faculty, administrators, and community partners who have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to service and social justice that transcends the classroom, with particular emphasis on inspiring others to engage as they respond to the needs of the world through their service to humanity." Award winners are nominated by campus community members and then selected by a small committee comprised of Princeton University staff. A luncheon in celebration of 2022 awardees took place on November 30 with family, friends, and colleagues in attendance.
