The Sy Schuster Award for Leadership in Diversity & Inclusion

Mathematics & Statistics Department
Carleton College
Northfield, Minnesota

The Sy Schuster Award for Leadership in Diversity and Inclusion will honor Sy by recognizing students whose leadership works to help Carleton’s mathematics and statistics community reflect the broad diversity of all people.

Sy Schuster was a force for fairness at Carleton and in the world. He combined a sage’s wisdom and deep knowledge with an activist’s passion for making the world better.  To students, especially, he modeled how a scholar can use calm reason to defend the powerless and bring about justice — all while maintaining an attitude of optimism, humor and joy.

Because Sy recognized the importance of social activism in all its forms, this award will go to one or more students who show leadership promoting diversity along racial, ethnic, disability, religious, sexual orientation, gender, socio-economic and all its other dimensions.
