Shawn O’Leary, director of the Office for Diversity, Inclusion and Community Engagement at Geisel, has received the Holly Fell Sateia Award, one of four Martin Luther King Jr. Social Justice Awards given this year as part of the Dartmouth community’s month-long celebration honoring the life and legacy of the civil rights leader.

Taryn Weinstein, Geisel’s new director of Student Affairs, says the school’s strong community helped ease her family’s transition from the busy New York City area earlier this year. “My role involves working in a variety of ways to help keep the students happy, healthy, and successful in all of their endeavors,” she says.
