Mt. SAC Professor Honored with Diversity Award

WALNUT, Calif.–––Mt. San Antonio College Communication Professor Liesel Reinhart was honored with the 2013 Stanback-Stroud Diversity Award at the spring plenary session of the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges on April 19 in San Francisco.

Reinhart, a resident of Altadena, received the award along with $5,000 from the Foundation for California Community Colleges for her work and commitment to helping underrepresented students.

“Rather than specializing in work for a single student population, her career reflects a consistent series of high-impact projects and programs that enhance the experience of African-American, Asian-American, Latino, LGBT, and deaf students while making the campus climate more open for all individuals,” said Mt. SAC Academic Senate President Eric Kaljumagi.

At Mt. SAC, she helped create the Black History Month Speech Contest, which celebrates African-American history as part of a speech contest. She has also been actively involved as collaborator with former Mt. SAC communication students on an original play, N*IGGER WETB*CK CH*NK (N*W*C), which deals with racial stereotypes. The play has toured the nation for six years and has been performed in more than 40 states for over 100,000 people.

Reinhart also serves as the communication department chairperson at Mt. SAC and served for many years as the coach for the college’s speech team.
