May 21, 2019

We are happy to announce that Katherine Canales-Molina—or Kat as we all know her—has been awarded a 2019 Chancellor’s Achievement Award for Diversity.


The Chancellor’s Achievement Awards for Diversity honor and showcase people and programs that have made outstanding contributions to furthering diversity, inclusion and excellence at UC Santa Cruz. This definitely describes Kat’s work. 

Kat is an extraordinary person, mentor, leader, and advocate for all students. Day in and day out, Kat has shown understanding and respect for the voices and leadership of the many student communities present at UCSC. She takes time to listen and understand. She is always present, supporting and advocating for students’ decisions and providing day-to-day mentorship so all students can be successful in organizing projects and initiatives that represent and serve their communities.

The nomination of Kat for this award was supported by testimonies and quotes by students, staff, and alumni. Read a few here.

Congratulations, Kat!
