* The Center for the Study of Higher Education (CSHE) at Penn State is pleased to sponsor the Dissertation of the Year award, to be presented to this year’s recipient at the Awards Ceremony  Houston. Please mark your calendars and plan to attend this important celebration of community and exemplary scholarship.

We celebrate the previous and current winners of the Bobby Wright Dissertation of the Year (DOY) Award. The 1986 DOY winner was Irvin Lee (Bobby) Wright, a faculty member in our Center from 1989 until his career was cut short due to his death in 1991 from AIDS. A gay Native American, he contributed historical studies of Native Americans in higher education and mentored students and colleagues alike, encouraging them to instill compassion in their scholarship. As Bobby Wright explained (via W.G. Tierney, personal communication, 1990):

“As an Indian I saw discrimination; I learned up close how people hated for no reason, but I also learned the spiritual way, tribal ways .…I’m glad to have been gay, to have been Indian, to have been poor. Each has made me what I am, and I have met extraordinary people. I pity those who hate, who don’t understand, who want to discriminate because I’m Indian, or gay, or poor. I’ve tried to live an honest life to the best of my ability, and I only wish other people tried as hard to accept and honor the difference in all of us.”

The Penn State CSHE faculty celebrate exemplary scholarship and commemorate all scholars whose work and lives have advanced diversity, equity, and the public good of higher education. May you achieve your highest aspirations and those of our field.
