Joseph P Allen Human Relations Award

The Joseph P. Allen Award was established to honor a professional dedicated to the principles of equal opportunity and equal access to college. With experience at UC Santa Cruz and the University of Southern California, Joe served as one of the Deans of the College Board’s Summer Institute for many years, meeting and training young professionals in all areas of recruitment, admission, and the tenets of our field. From the very beginning he did much to champion the underrepresented student and while he had a great mind for looking at the larger picture, he never forgot that each number and statistic was tied to a human being. The Joseph P. Allen award is presented to an individual who has encouraged and supported traditionally underrepresented students in the transition from high school to college.
