Building Bridges

Recognizing the Heroes Among Us

We invite Indiana University students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community partners across the state of Indiana to submit nominations for the 2021 Building Bridges Award. A committee of IU representatives will select recipients from across the state. Nominees could be a group or individual who promotes equality, diversity, inclusion, and respect. Maybe you know someone who demonstrates a passion for empowering others. Perhaps you are that person.

2021 Building Bridges Award recipients will be recognized on January 18, 2021, as we gather for a virtual celebration of Dr. King Jr.’s life and legacy. The deadline to submit a nomination was December 28, 2020.

The Building Bridges Award recognizes those organizations and people who capture Dr. King’s vision, spirit, and leadership in ways big and small — right here at IU and within communities across Indiana.
